This will be a difficult piece to give up as it has such a uniqueness that I believe qualifies it as rare in the field of dresser box collecting. The quality is superb. The piece is an oblong diamond shape, 5-1/2 inches at the widest point and 7-1/2 inches at the tallest or longest point. The very special 3-dimensional lady on the unglazed porcelain lid looks French and is dressed in a long skirt, puffed sleeve blouse, a tall feathered bonnet and is carrying a purse, fan and cloak draped over her shoulder. Her skirt is highlighted with enameled flowers on the unfired bisque background. There is gold luster highlighting surrounding her in a garland shape and she has gold luster highlighting on her clothing and accessories. The inside of the piece is glazed and the bottom is glazed. The box is shaded in a pale, pale blue with gold luster accents. I have found no marks. There is no damage and no restoration to this very beautiful, unique porcelain dresser box.
