Wonderful decorated is the beautiful vintage Limoges France hand painted Floral Dresser Box.
The beautiful hand painted Dresser Box measures a large 7-1/4" wide & 3-1/2" tall. The Artist has used large and vibrant "Deep Red Roses" on stem and leaf against a background of shadow leafing and colors of light creme yellow, light creme blue, and deep shades of green and brown. The combination of colors and decor has great eye appeal.
The Dresser Box is in very good condition and totally damage free of chips, cracks, or other damage with very minor paint wear and several minor and insignificant tiny rough spots.
The Dresser Box displays an early "Limoges France" mark and has been Artist signed and dated, "F.W.P. 1903"
I believe that the China Painter of this beautiful piece was Frank W. Paine. Frank Paine married Ida Upton, who had lived in the famous House of Seven Gables. They were both professional China Decorators and eventually opened up their own Studio
Here is a little history of Ida Upton Paine -
Ida Upton Paine (1860-1936), was an artist who spent most of her life living in Salem, MA. Her father was Henry Orlando Upton, who owned and was largely responsible for preserving the infamous House of Seven Gables, and turning it into a tourist attraction. Ida spent her childhood living in the house, and began her artistic career by painting souvenirs that the family sold in a gift shop at the House of Seven Gables. She later opened a studio on Essex Street in Salem, and married Paine, who was also an artist with a studio in the same building as Ida. Together they opened up the "Upton Paine Studio".
The deep vibrant colors of the Dresser Box makes her a perfect show piece for a vanity, bath, dresser, or small table.
