Tobacco Box, Engraved Brass and Copper
Dutch, 18th Century
Depicted is a possible variant of an annunciation, most unusual considering the apple and naked angel; scenes with man embracing woman; a framed face facing woman; engraved on the sides is "Verlaat" translating to "to abandon/leave" and "De Wereldt" or "the world." The iconography and verse is perhaps suggesting mortality and embracing physical pleasure before departing this world; open for interpretation.
