Vintage Trinket Box in the Form of a Blotter: this curious trinket box poses as a blotter, however it cannot be used as such. There is no means of attaching the blotter paper. The top of the blotter has a round metal box with an etched glass top that is hinged. The glass top has an etching of a Kwan Yin and two Chinese (?) symbols that I cannot read. The porcelain top of the blotter is beautifully decorated with flowers and a bird. The blotter part is wood. Condition is very good with little signs of use. There is one small air bubble in the glass top.The box has Germany pressed in the bottom. It is a very beautiful and unusual box, quite a conversation piece!
Measurements are: top is 5” by 2 ½”, overall height is 2 ¼”.
