We believe this porcelain box was produced in France at the Sevres factory in the late 1700s. It is unmarked. The quality of the painting and the workmanship of the doré bronze rim have led us to this conclusion. The box measures 3 inches long, 2 1/4 inches wide and 1 3/4 inches deep. It is hand painted with panels of colorful exotic birds in fine detail. It is elaborately gilded. The painting is on the top of the box, the sides and the bottom. There is another magnificent scene inside the lid. The porcelain has molded cartouches you can feel when you touch it. The bronze frame and hinge are wonderfully hand crafted. It ranks with items produced by Meissen, KPM, Nymphenburg and many other renowned porcelain manufacturers in Europe. Condition: Excellent
