    Pre-Lot Text

    The present enamel miniature is signed by Mrs. Suzanne Rohr, one of the most renowned and last artists able to perpetuate the supremely exacting art of miniature painting on enamel. Mrs. Rohr, who celebrated 40 years of collaboration with Patek Philippe in 2007, reserved her talent for the company. In her hands, the secret alchemy of the coloured enamels offers a second life of unequalled depth and finesse to some of the world's greatest art treasures.
