The interior of the shield with a carved basketweave pattern. The edge of the top incised with a laurel wreath pattern and finished with a scalloped edge. The top and edges of the apron and legs water gilded. The gilding with attractive wear, with red highlights form the bole clay showing through. Provenance: Gallerie Steinitz, Paris.
