This small Rococo style treasure lacks nothing except a maker's mark. Based on its fine detail and elegant proportions it is likely German, Czech or Austrian in origin. Its thin, 1/8" porcelain walls ring when tapped.
Stands approximately 4-1/4" tall x 1-1/2" wide. A line in the lavender pink cartouche (below cherub) is not damage, but looks like a color run coming off from the gold enamel. It is smooth, under the glaze and was made during manufacture. (Remember, originally these were inexpensively made trinkets..) Impressed number looks like 100-1/2 and 15. We wonder if the "15" refers to the year of manufacture. No restoration.
