Measuring 2 7/8" across the lid (3 1/4" including the hinge and pearl knob), this porcelain box is finely hand painted with rose and leaf links forming a chain around the side and on the lid. The porcelain is unmarked, and the silver is signed "Saint Yves Paris" on the silver rim of the box, and the silver rim on the lid has two small touch marks. The silver is stamped with a ribbon design on both rims and on the top, and there are a dozen pearls set into the silver. In good condition, no chips, cracks, or losses, just some tarnish on the silver. The porcelain has a wavy surface, clearly visible in the last photo of the top.
