Watercolor on Ivory set in gold and onyx.
The Royal Collection
While King George V wasn’t as much of a collector as his wife, Queen Mary (she often had to drag him to museums because he had little interest in art), he did occasionally collect little objects which managed to move him. This was one of them.
This miniature of watercolor on ivory is set in a gold and onyx bracelet with a beaded gold border. It came into the Royal Collection via George V. We’re not sure if this was a gift from his wife or something he purchased on his own.
