C.1890 Dresser Box Fairing with Children Sitting on Boxes
A very charming ‘Fairing’ that would have been a prize won at an English Fair. This trinket box was made in Germany by Conta & Boehme. The impressed marks help with the original and time of this trinket box.
The makers mark was easier to make out but the stock number has been difficult read. Our guess is 3856.
This is a two piece dresser box with two children sitting on boxes with open books in their lap. Condition is very good with no chips or cracks. Measurements: 4 5/8 inches high (with the lid on), 3 1/8 inches side and 1 15/16 inches deep. A wonderful fairing that is in great condition. NO chips, cracks or repairs. (Kate Greenway)
