The reverse of a portrait miniature depicting Adélaïde d'Orléans painted by John Smart Jnr in 1802. The glazed panel of this gold frame reveals an opalescent plaque set with a lock of hair, wire and seed pearls as a sheath of wheat. In the years between fleeing Paris for the second time and the Restoration of the French monarchy, Adélaïde developed a love of horticulture which she expressed in fine botanical illustrations and she is remembered in the strain of rose that was named her. Following the Restoration, Adélaïde was instrumental in persuading her brother, Louis Philippe, to present himself as a staunch opponent of the absolute monarchy of Charles X, favouring instead a constitutional monarchy. When, following the revolution of July 1830, the French people presented her brother with the crown, she became Madame Adélaïde and served as his adviser. 2) Pansies, Morning Glories, and Single Chrysanthemums, 1821, Adélaïde d'Orléans (Private Collection) 3) The rambling rose, Adélaïde d'Orléans . . . . . . . . . #adelaidedorleans#portraitminiature#miniatureportrait#miniature#antiqueportrait#antiquejewellery#wheat#wheatsheath#opalescent#opal#hairwork#botanical#ramblingrose#nineteenthcentury#1802#1821#illustration#philipmouldgallery
