I love roses and little flowers so of course I'm always so attracted to the Elfinware pieces but I only usually buy the ones with the bronze mounting, just so French! This little box is very sweet with the porcelain rose bouquet on the top of the lid, then as we expect little flowers painted (or printed) inside under the lid. Detailed bronze mounting on the lid and bottom it measures about 3 1/2" x 1 1/2".
In good vintage condition, the porcelain is a little loose on the lid top and as I have always usually found in these wares, there are a few tiny chips on the edges of the roses. The lip inside the box is without chips and otherwise there are no chips or cracks, breaks or repairs. Some age wear to the bronze so I have taken all this into consideration in the price, of course!
German in origin, circa 1920-1940,
