Description

Antique early-19th Century Exceptional Swiss 18k gold & enamel snuff box, of rectangular form with canted corners, the cover is set with a finely painted panel depicting King Solomon and his Architect. According to the Hebrew Bible, Solomon's Temple, also known as the First Temple, was the Holy Temple (Beit HaMikdash) in ancient Jerusalem before its destruction by Nebuchadnezzar II after the Siege of Jerusalem of 587 BCE and its subsequent replacement with the Second Temple in 516 BCE. The period in which the First Temple presumably, or actually, stood in Jerusalem, is known in academic literature as the First Temple period (c.1000–586 BCE)

The enamel plaque is decorated within a leaf and enamel-strung frame flanked by applied chased statuette figures of female warriors on enamelled plinths, all on a ground of black and translucent blue enamel over plume engine-turning, the side with similar geometric enamel panels separated by demi- and full paterae, the base with black and translucent blue enamel over plume engine-turning. Hallmarked with a makers mark for Rémond, Lamy & Cie, (active in Geneva, 1801-1804, very important Swiss goldsmiths), and French guarantee mark.
