This little porcelain trinket box measures 3 1/4" x 2" and 1 1/4" - just big enough for a few little treasures. The lid has a floral design in shades of green with pink and blue flowers, and the sides are trimmed with a striped swag with tiny bows. The hinged lid is rimmed with polished brass and the clasp is shaped like a butterfly.
There are no marks, and this could have been made by any one of several dozen companies. The history indicates that it is at least 30 years old, but it looks as if it has been displayed rather than used.
The butterfly clasp does not click shut firmly and the box is open about 2mm "at rest". This is barely noticeable, so I do not want to risk breakage by attempting to adjust it.
