Porcelain Children with Doll and Drum Dresser Box

Status: Available Price: $98.00
Description:
Very early German-made dresser box, whose cover depicts children at play. One is a little girl with her doll and the other is a boy with a drum. c.1850 or perhaps even earlier. Very early porcelain which was hand pressed into the molds--this can be detected in the interior of the piece. Lovely pastel color scheme of the children and toys and the base of the cover is grass and ground. The bottom portion of the box also has molded design of tassels. No markings because it is so early. Children, toys and bottom of box in lovely condition. There is a faint hairline and small mold flaw on the underneath portion of the cover which does not come through or show when the piece is together, this is shown in the photos. It is such a lovely piece, and hard to find such early porcelain. Overall height to top of little girls head is 4 1/4" and length is 3 1/3". These are sometimes referred to as trinket boxes or fairings.
