This mirror was the centrepiece of a large set of toiletry articles that the Dutch king Willem I had made as a wedding gift for his daughter Princess Marianne, who married Prince Albert of Prussia in 1830. The king commissioned Dutalis, the leading jeweller in Brussels, to make this superb ensemble in the French Empire style. The figures were modelled by sculptor Louis Royer.

The set included a jewellery case, various large and small boxes and this mirror.
