Offered for your collecting enjoyment is this lovely vintage Limoges fine porcelain dresser box.
On the back is the green underglaze makers mark that dates this to have been made circa 1891+ but it has a red overglaze decorators mark that I could not find any info on. I do see that this decorating studio that was in Limoges, France decorated hinged porcelain boxes, most hinged boxes were made after WWII so we feel this was made in the 1940's or 1950's.
This beautiful dresser box features one bird of paradise sitting in a tree, one bird of paradise standing on the ground and looking up at him and one that is flying in, with mountains and a lake in the background. This is encircled with blue and gold circles. A very nice touch is the bottom part of the box is also decorated with birds of paradise sitting in tree limbs all the way around. Birds of Paradise are the most beautiful birds in the world and are said to bring good fortune.
This is done in the "mixtion" method where they take a transferware and hand paint or hand enamel it to bring out the beauty. This box has been hand enameled.
It measures 6.75 inches wide and stands 1.75 inches tall. Just spectacular!!
It is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks.
Add this wonderful vintage fine Limoges dresser box to your collection or give as a fabulous vintage gift!!
We are very happy to have a similar dresser box also with birds of paradise but a different scene. Collect them both!!
