This charming porcelain powder box dates from the 1920s. It is marked on the underside Made in Germany 4252. It features a young woman in a with long hair, dressed in high fashion clothing. This piece has a great deal of detailing, including the ruffled accents of her costume at sleeves and down the front. She also holds a fan.

The box measures 4~1/4"" tall and is simply beautiful!
I sell vintage and antique items with a history; oftentimes items may show wear from a former life. I always try to note any serious condition issues. Please contact me if you have additional questions regarding the condition of the item. If you are seeking a collectible which looks brand new please reconsider purchasing. Our items are as described, but descriptions are subjective, after all. Please note, Ruby Lane's calculated shipping is an estimate and sometimes can be intimidating. Rest assured, I only charge my actual shipping costs and will refund any excess you have paid. USPS shipping rates (both domestic and international) continue to increase. I ship based on size of box (anything over 12" is considered oversized and charged a surcharge by USPS), weight, insurance and priority, first class or express options. I will refund any excess you have paid. I do combine shipping for multiple purchases.
