This is an Elegant and Fabulous Looking Footed Victorian Dresser Box/ Jar with a Portrait of a Little Girl on the Lid / Top. This is a big Dresser Box/Jar and stands 6" tall, it is 9 & 11/2" across the handles. The Jar itself is 7" in diameter. The Portrait of the little Girl on the top is fantastic. She looks like the Art Work of Maud Humphrey, who was famous for her Child Portraits. She is a real Sweetie! Her Portrait is done in a square handkerchief shape and is decorated in Pink Peach Colors in the background and she has beautiful long, curly, wavy Red Auburn Hair. She is wearing a Gray colored cap on her head, she is surrounded by Flowers, Orange carnations and shadowed flowers around her. the decoration around her has Enameling in Gold, Rust Orange and Dark Blue that are of scrolling, curling and dots designs. It is decorated on entire sides of the Box with the same Gold, Rust Orange designs. This Box has Brass Fitting on the Bottom base and is on (4) Feet that has Faces like the "Old Man North Wind" with Claw Feet. It has (2) fancy Brass Handles that come out from the Box, around and curl over and has Brass fittings that have hinges for opening and closing. It is unmarked and we would say that it is more than likely is European. ( French or English) This would be the highlight of someone's Victorian Dresser and would look just wonderful with some other vanity pieces.
