This porcelain trinket box was produced in England by Coalport in the 1890s. It is 3 1/4 inches long, 2 1/2 inches wide and 1 3/4 inches high. The rectangular shape is rounded and puffy. There is a distinct middle eastern touch to the design. An enamel faux agate graces the top of the lid. Panels of raised turquoise and white beads, or jewels covered half of the box. The other two sides have an intricate pattern of raised gold, accented with multi-colored raised enamel beads. The detailed work is amazing. The interior of the box has a spattered gold finish. It is a rare and exquisite piece.
Condition: Enamel medallion on lid has crazing and very light crazing on the white portion not visible to the naked eye.
