Elegant Ceramic Patch or Bonbonniére Box, early 19th Century
This is a most attractive early 19th century ceramic box which could have been used for patches, snuff or as a bonbonniére. The lid depicts a couple in late 18th century costume with an unclear artist’s signature and edged with gilt. The box has gilt metal fittings and opens to reveal a space for desired contents and the inside of the lid and base have sprays of flowers. There is a blurred mark on the base which could be for Berlin and when purchased, it was stated that this was the maker. The box is in excellent condition and would make a lovely statement in a collection of small objet de vertu. 2.5 ins (6cm) x 2 ins (5cm) x 1 ins (2.5cm). Weight 68 grams. This item appears in my book, “Antique Boxes, Inside and Out” on page 96.
