This porcelain jewel casket was produced in France in the mid-19th century. The style is very similar to porcelain from the Sevres factory. It is unmarked therefore we cannot specifically identify the maker. There are artist’s initials in the painting. It measures 7 inches long, 4 1/4 inches high and 4 inches wide. The porcelain has molded decorations in the rococo style. The sides are blown out and puffy and the casket sits on four feet. The ground color of the casket is cobalt blue. There are three reserves framed in ornate raised gold. The top is a formal garden with lovers by a lake. The other scenes are landscapes. There are two sides that are cobalt blue with gilded trophies. The interior has the remnants of silk lining. The box has gilt bronze mounts and latch. This is a jewel of a casket. Condition: Excellent
