This mirror was the showpiece of an extensive toilet service that the Dutch king William I ordered as a wedding gift for his daughter, Princess Marianne, who married Prince Albert of Prussia in 1830. For this magnificent commission in the French Empire style, the King engaged Dutalis, the leading Brussels goldsmith. The figures are by the sculptor Royer. The set included a jewel coffer, large and smaller gilded boxes and a mirror.
