A set of miniatures of the royal family

I'm always browsing eBay for something that catches my eye, and this antique decorative screen certainly grabbed my attention! The screen, believed to be French, features four hand painted portrait miniatures of the French royal family.

I'm not always a fan of 19th century reproduction miniatures, since the details of the originals are often lost or muted, but I love how the softer colors in these miniatures are complimented by the pattern of the screen and the gold frame.

More details of the set, including individual portrait details, can be found at the original auction page.
