This hand painted porcelain box is handsome! I love the subject matter which depicts two angels sitting in a rose garden reading a book together. The overall art work on this piece is beautiful. The background color is a soft blue with roses and leaves around ¾ of the angels. The angels' hair is brown with highlights and their faces are also quite detailed. Their wings are painted artistically, appearing dimensional.
The base of the box is painted a solid soft blue. The marks on the bottom are "GDA" for Gerard, Duffaisseix & Abbot under glaze, whiteware mark in green.
This storage box is 3" X 1 ½". The condition is very good with some wear to the gold rim. There are no chips, cracks or hairlines, circa 1900-1910.
