Circa 1901 French Limoges Mug with Hand Painted Portrait of Sitting Bull

Welcome to my shop, The Strands of Time. I hope that you will enjoy browsing through the fine vintage and antique jewelry items in the shop and find something that is special.

I have a "no hassle" return policy. I guarantee my jewelry so purchase with the knowledge that, if you buy an item and are not happy, you may return it for a refund.

My goal is to exceed your highest expectations.

This is a rare find. A gentleman named Jesse gave this hand painted Limoges mug as a Christmas present dated 1901. The portrait is of Sitting Bull and is quite well done.

The mug is 6 inches tall. The base is 4.5 inches in diameter and the lip is 3 inches in diameter. The mug is much more tapered than the photos show.

This antique is in great condition. The is a very minor paint loss on the bottom rim of the mug in 2 places. The tag in the photo was in the mug when purchased so I left it with it.

If my shop is offering a discount, complete the purchase order then wait to receive a revised purchase order showing the promotional discount. Pay from the second purchase order.

I am always open to reasonable offers. Offers that I accept from you or make to you are valid for 30 days unless the item sells before that time.

Thank you for visiting my shop and please come back again. I add new items regularly.


I offer lay-a-way on all items. My lay-a-way terms and procedures are as follows:

I do not charge any fees for the service. I divide the total purchase into 4 parts. The down payment (Payment 1 of 4) is due at the time of purchase. I will send an invoice through PayPal even if you opt to pay with check or money order. Payment 2 of 4 is due 30 days later. Payment 3 of 4 follows in another 30 days, and the final payment (4 of 4) is due in another 30 days. The item is paid in full in 3 months.

I am flexible with start dates so if you have a particular time of the month that you prefer to pay, I can send the invoice on that date. I can set up the lay-a-way with 3 payments if you prefer. With purchases over $1000, I will consider setting up 5 or 6 payments. Items purchased on lay-a-way will be shipped immediately after the final payment is paid and cleared.

Lay-a way returns are for store credit or exchange.
