A sumptuous dresser or trinket box produced in the early 1900s by The Von Schierholz Manufactory in the town of Plaue in Thuringia, Germany. The heavy porcelain box is hand painted around the sides and on the inside bottom and top with sprigs of flowers. The top of the lid has a fantastic molded array of fruit interspersed with grapes and flower blossoms, painted in rusts, greens, aubergine, blue and pink. The dimensional fruit is quite tactile. There are fine lines of gilt around the edges of the box and the lid.
The unglazed foot has the three oak leaves on a crowned shield backstamp which date this piece to 1907-27. The box is 4 3/4" diameter and stands 2 3/4" high. Weight is 1 lb 11 ounces. There is a broken/missing petal on one of the blue flowers on the lid.
