Beautiful pair of Limoges enamel wedding purse plaques, representing a couple at the end of the reign of Louis XIV, made by Jacques II Laudin (1663-1729).

Slightly bulging plaques, very finely made. Very nice drawing and modelling.

Several lacks in the edges and at the level of the fasteners (more particularly pronounced for the woman).

Rare

Dimensions: 8 × 5 cm

These so-called wedding purses were used to hold the gold coins that the husband offered to his wife. They were often enriched with embroidery or enamels representing the bridegrooms. At royal weddings or weddings of noble families, purses with wedding tokens could be offered to guests of honour or high rank. Several examples of this type of purses can be found at the Louvre Museum.
