Large and fabulous antique French cobalt blue porcelain box with a handpainted portrait miniature of Diana the Huntress. Of superb quality, the box measures 5.75" in diameter---a substantial piece. The bronze embellishments are breath taking in detail! The portrait miniature is 2 7/8" in diameter and signed by the artist (looks like Castang Largilliere?). The hinged lid opens to reveal a white porcelain interior. The top of the lid contains a brass plate which can be opened by the tabs. In excellent antique condition with no chips or cracks to the porcelain. The portrait look to be in fine condition. The bronze mounts have a luscious aged patina. An exquisite piece!
