Hand painted porcelain is so beautiful no matter if executed in a factory, professional or small home studio environment. The overall artistic quality of the item is what really matters.
This lovely hand painted powder/trinket box, circa 1900, was created in a small home studio with wonderful artistic abilities. The cover and base is decorated with a garland of light to medium blue forget-me-not blossoms with pale green and pink leaves and delicate blue scroll. The background is a combination of pastel blue and creamy yellow, with the wide, overhanging edge of the cover and finial decorated with gold. The box measures 2 3/4" in height and 4 3/8" across. The porcelain blank is stamped 'Favorite Bavaria", circa early 1900's. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; some gold wear on the edge and finial. Lovely design.
