Lovely Capo di Monte Porcelain Box with figures (putti?) in reserves that are surrounded by raised circles with 24K gold c-scrolls surrounding the reserves. The lid has a woman's portrait that is highly raised above the surface and enameled laurel leaves & berries on other side.. The mounts appear to be bronze; very dense metal unlike brass. Most of the 24K gold is intact; interesting hinge with bar going across.. unfortunately the lid does not close all the way down.. all in remarkable very good condition for over two hundred years old.. measures 2 1/4" long x 2" wide x 1 5/8" high. a little treasure.
