Emperor Franz Joseph Dresser Box #172-12

Status: Available Price: $225.00
This is one of the rarest dresser boxes I have ever owned and it comes out of my personal collection. The box depicts Emperor Franz Joseph who was the emperor of the Austro-Hungarian Empire from 1848 to 1916. This particular box was produced in Germany sometime around 1880-85 era. Franz Joseph has a very particular style of long mutton chops and moustache, is dressed in his regal outfit of ermine cape and the glorious Holy Roman Empire crown on his head; beautiful plum colored robe with beige lustered and deep blue clothing underneath. He is also wearing in 2 places the Austrian Order of the Cross. Extraordinary execution of facial features, this is a very special piece. 5 3/4" high to the top of his crown. Beautiful condition with no breaks or repairs. Marked only with hand incised numbers underneath.
