Marie-Antoinette was only seven years in this miniature portrait painted by Martin van Meytens. She shared her childhood between the Hofburg Palace in Vienna and Schönbrunn Palace, alongside her mother, Archduchess Maria Theresa, and his fifteen brothers and sisters. She was a real tomboy. Eight years later, she will be sent to France with large escort to marry Louis, the future king of France and become a French fashion icon.
The pattern is made and cut by a French foundry and gilded with fine gold with a gilder nesteld in the heart of the Alps. Each piece is carefully mounted on a golden chain, then packed in the Paris studio of Mon Petit Musée.
