With the introduction of Neoclassicism in the third quarter of the 18th century, interest in engraved gemstones was revived. Active in the Netherlands were gem engravers who produced various portraits of members of the House of Orange. They were set in rings and presented to individuals who had performed special services for the Dutch royal family. This portrait is an image hollowed out of the stone (intaglio).
