This porcelain covered box was produced in Germany by Meissen between 1924 and 1934. It has the underglaze blue crossed swords marking with the dot on top. The box is made of the finest porcelain that the Western world has ever produced. It measures 4 ¾ inches long, 3 ¾ inches wide and 1 ¾ inches deep. The decoration is Kakiemon style, inspired by the Asian cultures. The hand painted design of a butterfly and stylized flowers is very colorful and finely detailed. The rims are trimmed with gold. The oval shape is quite charming and fits into the palm of your hand. This pattern is uncommon and Kakiemon pieces are in demand.
Condition: Excellent, first quality.
