A RECTANGULAR PARCEL-GILT GRISAILLE, ENAMEL, GILT-COPPER AND SILVER-MOUNTED CASKET
CIRCLE OF MARTIAL YDEUX, MID 16TH CENTURY AND LATER
With three scenes relating to Phaeton and his chariot, the two side panels associated and altered, the casket with four colonnettes, on bun feet
Although the present casket has previously been attributed to Pierre Reymond, the delicate painting technique and distinctive treatment of the hair and horse's manes are closer in style to a set of plaques attributed by Veronique Notin to the enameller Martial Ydeux (Notin, loc. cit.).
