About

Gorgeous sterling silver cigarette box / case with enamel painting covering lid: female nude called 'the source', once created by the famous french neoclassical painter Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres (1780-1867). The lid is decorated with stunning enamel painting - following scene is visible there: 'A female nude standing upright between an opening in the rocks and holding in her hands a pitcher, from which water flows. She thus represents a water source or spring which, in classical literature, is sacred to the Muses and a source of poetic inspiration. She stands between two flowers, with their "vulnerability to males who wish to pluck them", and is framed by ivy, plant of Dionysus - the god of disorder, regeneration, and ecstasy. The water she pours out separates her from the viewer, as rivers mark boundaries of which the crossing is symbolically important.' [Wikipedia]. Jean A.-D. Ingres completed the referring oil painting on canvas in year 1856 (the original picture is nowadays in Musée d'Orsay, Paris).   Made during second half of 19th century. Sterling silver (hallmarked) = silver 925.   Measures: 9.5 x 6.0 cm / 3.93 x 3.14 inches Height: 1.5 cm / 0.59 inch. Total weight: 107 grams / 3.76 OZ. Condition: Excellent (there aren't any damages existing).
