Description

This chubby-cheeked pair is obviously in love and expecting their pretty, bow decorated pointy-toe shoes to keep them dancing the night away.

This unmarked piece of possible European origin provided bureau-top storage space for coins and small pieces of jewelry. In Victorian times these decorative pieces were sold at fairs, thus the term “fairing trinket box.” It is said these pieces were predominantly made in Germany - but at the time German porcelain was considered inferior to English porcelain – so in order to sell them, English vendors deceptively claimed that they had been manufactured in Staffordshire.

Overall Height - base to boy’s hat approx. 4.25"
Length 4.875”
Width 2.625” at widest point

Oval White porcelain box embossed floral scroll on front
Figurine Lid boy and girl wearing very detailed period costumes

Backmark None

Condition – Good. One crack at one side of box (see photograph)– price discounted in consideration of this flaw.

Refer to the photographs which are, with these notes, the entire description of this item’s condition. (The colors in the photo may vary by computer)
Sold "as is"

Global shipping is available, contact us to request rates.
