Condition: Tiny pinpoint glaze loss on the edge of the lid as issued from the factory; a little roughage on the underside of the lid with no glaze loss, just common usage of the past 100 years; no restorations or repairs. A small putti stands on a grassy knoll holding his cache of flowers. Box sitting on three feet. Glaze: mottled green metallic eosin against an ocher ground. Very few examples exist reflecting this Viennese influenced design.
