Tabatière [snuff box] made in France in the 1840s


The image on the cover is a reproduction of Guérin’s famous paining: “Enée Raconte ses Avantures à Didon” [Aeneas relates his adventures to Dido]. Guérin’s painting was the inspiration behind one of the scenes in Les Troyens (Act 4, second tableau, N° 35 – Récitatif et quintette).
