Ladies have always enjoyed decorating with covered jars and boxes, both large and small, all over the house for their decorative appeal as well and usefulness.
This lovey figural covered box features a figural lid with an attractive young lady, waist up, as the finial. The lid is composed of a portion of the ladies layered and ruffled evening gown with the border decorated with a spattered gold design. The dish portion is encircled with heavy enamel blue floral with spattered gold highlights. The box measures 3" in height and 3 1/2" in diameter. There is the remnants of a red marking on the base, but illegible. If feel its japan origin, circa 1920. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. Wonderful size and subject matter.
