A pair of polychrome translucent enamelled gold roundels.

One of these tiny jewel-like roundels, each of which measures 3.2cm in diameter, depicts The Adoration of the Kings and the other, The Nativity. Lustrous blue, green and red enamel is enriched with gold and they are mounted in a 17th Century ebonised wood frame. Once thought to have been rare examples of mediaeval Burgundian craftsmanship, the roundels are now considered to be either German or French and probably date from the late 19th Century.
