Around 200 years old and almost certainly Dresden and is very influenced by the 18c Chinoiserie era. Very large at 12 3/4" tall and 12 3/4" across the back of the wooden top, 7" deep. The food dog is loose and there are some chips to the flowers on the side. The wood shelving of course shows it's age, but it is amazing it remains at all since 99% are re-done. All hand painted with courting couple and floral decorations of Watteau inspirations. I do not see any repairs other than this possibly being re-mounted to the board, and the foo dog will need to be securely reapplied....but what a wonderful find. Hopefully the pictures will clear this up. A great true antique wall shelf!
