A hard paste translucent porcelain snuff box. Top and sides are hand painted. Interior: flowers appear to be transfer and then hand painted typical of Dresden wares.Top is undamaged but base and sides are as shown with cracks reglued. Size: 3 inches wide, by 2 3/8 by 1 5/8 inches high. Do not recognize this mark, seems some variant of the crossed swords but origin?? If you recognize this mark your help would be greatly appreciated. THE ABOVE DESCRIPTION IS MY BEST OPINION.
