This is a 1960-1970 Lenwile China/Ardalt of Japan trinket box in shape 6492 with a relief design

of florals and an applied floral on the lid. This piece has a value of $25 retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local) , Wanelo.com, http://www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com,
Ebay and letgo.com (local).

You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.

Please do click the stars now for this one (bonuses are also welcome!), it is very important for me
to get good feedback for answering.

I thought it was older.It was my Aunts and she said she bought it in the 50's. Maybe she was wrong

1960 is when it is reported that they

made this foil sticker to add to their porcelain items.

They did make items starting in 1952,

certainly possible to be from

the 1950's,

if she bought it then the value would still be at about $25.

To end this one, please click the stars in the upper right and hit submit.
A good feedback is the only way I am paid by the site.
This action does not cost you anything extra.
