Dated letter 3 December 1864 with a monogram with a crowned ‘L’ in embossment.

Three-sided.

Addressed to an English lady Lady, Molesworth.

'’Bruxelles le 3 décembre 1864

Chère Lady Molesworth,
Si j'ai tardé à répondre à l'aimable lettre que vous m'avez fait pour remettre Torringham à mon arrivé en Angleterre c'est parce qu'à mon départ j'avais éspéré pouvoir le faire verbalement.
Je regrette beaucoup de vous avoir manqué et j'ai été fort touché d'apprendre que c'était mon indisposition qui vous aurait retenu à Paris.
Vous avez eu la bonté de me faire demander a photographie, je m'empresse de vous l'envoyer ci-contre et j'y joins l'expression en hommages affectueux de celui qui vous prie de croire, chère Lady Molesworth à mes meilleurs sentiments pour vous.
Leopold’.

Lady Molesworth was a British singer and society figure.

PROVENANCE: Sothebys Pencarrow Estate.
In Pencarrow House she invited all kinds of important figures, ranging from Charles Dickens to Napoleon III.

Lady Moleworth gifted a dog ‘Le Squib’ to King Leopold II and Marie Henriette. The dog was scared to death for the imposing stature of Leopold II. There is a painted portrait of the dog in the Palace.

11.5 x 18 cm.

    L’objet était parfaitement emballé et protégé et envoyé en parfait état. Vous faites un feed-back négatif suite au mauvais traitement du colis par la poste ou peut être l’avez vous vous-même endommagé. Je n’accepte pas non plus la façon autoritaire avec laquelle vous m’avez contacté et je ne me déplacerai certainement pas pour récupérer l’objet.

  • Beautiful object, with naive painted rose and rooster patter. I like decoration "al galletto". Very good wrapping and prompt shipment.
