We are pleased to offer a wonderful antique porcelain box. The box is heart-shaped and features a handpainted scene on the top. The painting features two Asian or Oriental children, a girl and boy, who appear to be engaged in conversation. The bottom of the box and the border on the top is decorated in pink, red, white and gold.
The box is marked underglaze on the bottom for A. Klingenberg, a porcelain factory and decorating studio in Limoges, France. This mark was used circa 1890-1910.
The box is in good condition. There is a hairline visible only on the inside of the lid. Please see photographs for a view of this flaw.
The box measures approximately 4-5/8" wide x 2-1/4" high with the lid in place.
A charming piece with many possible uses!
