£ 1,500

Artist: Philip Jean

Set in a navette shaped bracelet clasp frame,

Jean was born in Jersey. He was at first in the English Royal Navy, but later devoted himself to painting. He was chiefly a miniaturist, yet also worked with oils.

While settled in London, Jean painted portraits of many members of the British Royal Family, amongst them the portraits of George III, of the Queen Charlotte, of the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and of their children. He exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1787 to 1802. Amongst other collections, his works belong to the Victoria and Albert Museum and Windsor Castle.
