A Very Fine English Carved Ivory Oval Micro-Miniature Portrait of the Duke of York and Albany
Second son of George III by G Stephany and J Dresch. The finely carved ivory floral surround and portrait laid on Bristol blue glass
An old label in ink to the reverse ‘Duke York..... by Stephani & .....’
Circa 1792 – 1797

Size: 11cm high, 9cm wide – 4¼ ins high, 3½ ins wide (glass oval)
cf: A portrait of Charlotte, Princess Royal circa 1792 – 1797 by Stephany & Dresch acquired by Queen Mary now in the Queen’s collection

Because of their unimaginably small, but accurate naturalistic construction the ivory reliefs and portraits of Stephany and his partner Dresch were regarded as unique marvels unable to be replicated or counterfeited.
