I admit I have owned this for decades and just never researched it. French? German? I thought this might be Belleek, and I've checked it with other dealers to be more certain of it since there isn't any maker mark to help with the confirmation. I've found several similar but a bit less gorgeous, and a few basket-like porcelain dishes identified as Belleek while researching it. Even so, I have grown to believe it is not that - in any case, it's a beautiful work. If you're an expert, please email us and help us a bit. That said, it is a stunning old thing! Large, 6.5" diameter and 4" tall with the lid in place. It has survived in remarkable form. I find a tip of a leaf or petal is tucked inside, so there must be one that awaits that small reattachment. I've photographed it from all sides. The tiny leaf tip is about 1/4" or so, not much.
Very good to excellent for age and type, the tiny petal tip mentioned above rests inside to be reattached. There are no breaks in all of that porcelain work, the lattice remains perfect all around. It has the most gorgeous top arrangement. Truly a work of art. I've owned it for decades, purchased on a buying trip in France.
