    Very nice find, Gary.
    I cannot add much to your query, I’m afraid, only to say that it would be enamel, rather than porcelain (which would not adhere to metal and would shatter into a thousand pieces the moment you picked it up)!
    Otherwise, a lovely little piece. I’ve never seen one like it, though, as you know, there were many such items gifted by aristocracy and royalty (usually to officers, of course). The artwork and initials D.K. appear to be painted onto a plain white enamelled surface (suggested by the wear and scuffing), rather than being of fired enamels themselves.
