Jewel cabinet with watch, 1765, England. Purveyor: James Cox (ca. 1723–1800). The enamels on the side of the cabinet were adapted from prints of paintings by Antoine Watteau (1684–1721) and François Boucher (1703–1770). With characteristic inventiveness, Cox included a secret drawer above the more obvious drawers that is released by means of a jeweled button on the back of the cabinet. The watch is supported by two playful cherubs of cast and painted brass and surmounted by a bust of a lady.
