This is an Edwardian era antique German porcelain egg shaped trinket box.
The egg is large at 7 inches long by 5 inches wide and 4 and 1/2 inches high.
The egg is hand painted with gilt scroll on the base an a high gloss finish.
The top of the egg features delicate lilys of the valley contrasted by a dark blue band and gold scroll work on the base of the egg.
The bottom is embossed 8447 and stamped with the number 48.
There is a repair on the side rim and I've shown a close up in the photos.
