This is a Moschendorf porcelain egg trinket box.

The PM represents Porzellan Moschendorf of Dresden, Germany (the company formerly using a Bavaria mark).

The word Dresden indicates a date of the late 1940-early 1950's.

This egg has a current value of $30USD to $40USD retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Varagesale.com, Ioffer.com, OfferUp.com, Ebay and letgo.com.
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
