Unusual Samson French porcelain armorial book box

An absolutely charming piece! Large Samson French porcelain armorial box in the shape of two stacked books. Characteristic Samson details. Overall white enameled floral decoration in relief. Handpainted floral sprays in the Chinese manner. Handpainted gold gilt trim. Wonderful armorial crest on the lid. Floral sprays on the inside of the box. The only thing to note is the bronze frame has been reglued at some point and does not lay flush. No cracks or hairlines. Dates to the 19th century. Measures 6" long by 4" wide by 2.5" tall. This piece along with others listed came from a nice estate which had beautiful French porcelain. Please take a look at the other pieces in my shop.
