Remarkable Paul Jean Milet Sevres porcelain box. This box has been coated with a dark green drip glaze that contrasts beautifully with the brass border, latch and garlanded rope and wreath decorations on the sides. The top also features a rectangular flower metal applique. The bottom is signed with the "MP Sevres" mark, which was used from 1911 until 1930.
The box is in very good condition. No chips, cracks or crazing, although there is some light wear associated with age. Hinge and latch are both in excellent working condition.
The box stands 3.5" tall and measures about 9" wide.
We encourage interested buyers to stop by our 11,000 square foot shop to preview this stunning piece in person.
WE DO NOT CHARGE EXTRA FOR LABOR, HANDLING OR MATERIALS COSTS. However, we do take extreme extra care when packing, and china, glass and fragile items are wrapped in extensive bubble wrap, peanuts, many times double-boxed, etc. This adds to the weight and dimensions of the final shipment, and impacts the cost by a few dollars, but our buyers are happy because their items arrived safely! We are open during the weekend, so local pickup is always an option.
We do not ship large furniture items, but we are more than happy to work with your preferred freight carrier. We can recommend several freight companies that have good results. Our warehouse has a full loading dock, freight elevators, etc, so freight pickup is no problem.
