Portrait plaques: Baron Carl Mayer von Rothschild (1788-1855) and Adelheid, Baroness Carl Mayer von Rothschild (1800-1853), c.1840

000/2215, 2 items

Two portrait plaques depicting Baron Carl Mayer von Rothschild (1788-1855), and his wife, Adelheid, Baroness Carl Mayer von Rothschild (née Hertz) (1800-1853). The two exquisitely carved circular marble portrait plaques in heavy gilded frames depict likenesses of Carl and Adelheid in profile relief. The artist is unknown and the pieces undated, but from the appearance of the sitters they are believed to date c.1840. Displayed at old New Court for many years, they appear in an inventory in the Archive of collections at Gunnersbury Park in 1917 (see 000/400), and it is likely that these pieces were in the collections of Charlotte, Baroness Lionel de Rothschild, either in her London town house, or Gunnersbury (from 1850 when Lionel inherited the Gunnersbury estate). They would have been a comforting reminder of her parents living across The Channel. Each plaque stands on a black metal stand, which appears to be contemporary with the plaques.
