This is so cool! This Chinese Cobalt Blue porcelain trinket box would be beautiful all by itself. What really makes it so special is the Silver Dragon and Butterflies that adorn the box, as well as they charming painting of two children playing, inside the box. The mark on the bottom of box, "bears the reign mark of the Emperor Daoguang 1821-1850." As was told to me at Auction where I purchased this beautiful and very unusual trinket box.

The “Children at play” or “Children playing” motif (婴戏图 / 婴戏) is a metaphor which alludes to continuing the family line, marital blessings and lots of kids. It also implies fun, happiness, carefree and innocence and is seen on porcelain, folk arts, in paintings and embroideries quite a lot, though not exclusively. “Children at play” never depicts girls – this is an exclusively male only club. There are many many many variations on this auspicious theme from region to region and period to period.

Shipping from United States

I try to absorb some of the shipping cost on items which are very costly to ship, so I usually end up paying some of the shipping costs out of my shop's "piggy bank". Doing this insures I may offer my items at reasonable prices without building in shipping costs.
I usually ship the same day I get your order, at the most it is two days. I insure every package I ship, with the exception, the item purchased is $10.00 or less. I take great care in making sure your purchase arrives safely and quickly.
