This adorable miniature box dates to the 19th Century. It is made of porcelain and has hand painted designs.
The box is marked, with what I believe to be a Samson mark, very similar to that of a Meissen mark, but this is definitely a French piece.
The outside of the box is decorated in beautiful colors of blue, yellow and red. The hinged lid has a picture of a couple in a garden. When opening the bronze trimmed lid you see the inscription "Secret en Amour". Very charming, and a wonderful gift for a loved one.
The box measures 2" by 1 3/8" and is 1 1/8" high. It is in good antique condition, with some minor crackling on the top picture.
