Decorated to the lid with a finely hand painted scene of a man playing the lute for a his lover, children, and dogs. There is a sevres type mark to the base. The bronze mount has been apparently re-secured with a second adhesive (at some time in the past).
All in all, simply a top shelf french porcelain casket. It is in overall good, as-pictured, used estate condition. The bronze mount has been resecured with a second adhesive that has oxidized to an orange color. Otherwise, there are some light scratches throughout, some losses to some of the enameling and jeweling here and there, and some rubbing to the gold throughout, and other signs of expected light wear consistent with age. Marked to the base with a sevres type mark.Please see our other related items. The full value is the items sale price. An item may be returned for within 14 days of receipt.
