Customer Question

I have a small covered jewel case (maybe, I don't know what it is), with Oscar Schlegelmilch on the bottom, a crown, a capital letter "L" and the number 50. It was my grandmother's who immigrated to the states in the early 20's. It is painted with gold floral designs and on the top (that has a handle) there are 3 maidens and a cupid. I have no idea if this if of any value or while I'm purging possessions, does it go in a donation box?

Hi, Porcelain wares by Oscar Schlegelmilch sell in the average range of $5 - $25 on today's market. This is a good candidate for the donation box. ~Nora
