Braunsdorf Floral Box

This is a rare treat - a superb little box made by Meissen in the later 19th century. It is hand painted with a superb floral scene of violets (I think) painted by the famous Professor Julius Eduard Braunsdorf who worked at Meissen from 1858 until 1906 and is famous for the most beautiful and real looking flowers at Meissen if not anywhere! Prof. Braunsdorf studied at the Art Academie in Dresden before coming to Meissen and is among the most important floral painters ever. This box is a perfect example of his work and while you see plates from time to time these boxes are quite rare! The entire box is handpainted with a chocolate / dark brown ground with the flowers painted on the lid including leaves and blossoms in different stages on it. They look amazingly real! The edge of both the top and the bottom has a nice Art Nouveau gold trim to it. Nice gold design to the bottom inside. An amazing piece for sure! The lidded dish is in perfect condition which is a bonus! The bottom part is marked with the underglaze blue crossed swords mark (first quality) underneath as shown. The box is 2 inches tall and 2.875 inches in diameter. Please email me for more information or other pictures.
