This is a George Jones Majolica Fig Box. This marvelous piece of Majolica is one of those very hard to find George Jones items. In my 36 years in this business, 35 of which I have personally collected, this is only the second one I have seen. The other one had a Turquoise outer color and Pink interior. It was being sold by one of the largest Majolica dealers in the country, if not the largest. It was in perfect condition and was $8500.00. Mine is a rich cobalt outer with bright Lime green color trim. The interior is a deep turquoise color. I have owned this box for a long time and purchased it as it is now. Perfect save one of the corner on the top was broken and replaced with glue. That glue mark looks like it was painted with a darker blue color paint. I have never taken it apart or had it restored. I have been delighted to just own it and display it with my collection. It could be restored if you choose to do so. I have priced this rare and wonderful box with this condition in mind.
DIMENSIONS: 7 ¼” X 5 ½” X 4” including the Fig finial
CONDITION: as noted above it does have corner damage. That said, the remainder of this VERY hard to find item is in lovely condition.
