9” ( 22cm ) French porcelain Art Deco design covered box with oval shaped base, the top half as the head and torso of a lady wearing a strapless black blouse with square-cut collar, edged in gold luster and having her arms tightly folded with hands clasped just under the chin. The dramatic coiffure has the hair pulled tightly back leaving forehead totally exposed, ears fully covered, and all in back tightly gathered into a tight bun with neckline left bare. The primary basic color background is a cobalt blue with both geometric and floral designs in gold, light yellow, pale green, and white tiny dots. Inside both top and bottom sections are signatures in a green stamp “ B.G. Limoges FRANCE “. Overall condition is very good with only a minor irregularity in the back lower edge of the top section at the base which is barely detectable as it is edged in black, also allowing for the possibility this is a minor flaw “ in -the- making “ as opposed to a latter incurred chip. Impressive and ultra-stylistic portrayal of a 1920s independent young lady.
