A beautiful old French porcelain box with cavorting putti. One is wildly beating a tambourine while flailing about, as the others jam on a lute and fiddle. Around the side, other putti are roping off the area to prevent sneaky cherubim from getting in to the concert for free. This is a fun, well executed and colorful box, and a good sized one too, measuring 5 1/2 inches long, 3 1/2 inches deep, and about 2 1/2 inches tall. Suitable for your loose jewelry and assorted other items that require putti looking after them. Now, as for the notion of french Capodimonte: there was a revival in interest in Italian porcelain around the turn of the 20th century. The Capodimonte N with crown mark was never a protected trademark, and was used by numerous makers when they made Capodimonte inspired wares. Much of it was good, like this piece, and some, well, not so much.
