An antique tray of exceptional metal work. Reynold's Angels depicted in metal with very accurate and sharp images in relief.

The angels are infact 5 depictions of the same girl. Sir Joshua Reynolds " A Child’s Portrait in Different Views: Angel’s Heads ", painted between 1786–7.

This depicts five studies of the head of Lady Frances Isabella Keir Gordon, a lovely five year old girl. Each of the heads shows a different expression, from wonder to concern to happiness. In only one part does she look directly out of the painting, her attention briefly caught and held by the world beyond the frame. ( Lower right )

These are getting rarer by the day and I have not come across another example where the metal work is as sharp and fresh.

26 cms by 18 cms / no marks but most likely English latter Victorian.
