Here is a French Limoges powder box from the former Havilland company of Gerard, Dufraissiex, and Abbot, dating from around 1900-1920. The pretty floral decoration is well done and quite artistic. The design of sweet blue forget-me-nots was a popular motif of the Victorian Era. Hand-decorating china was one of the few creative outlets available to the Victorian matron and was a very popular pass-time. Ladies used pieces they painted with forget-me-nots as gifts and keepsakes during the years 1890-1930. This piece is not signed. It is lovely, however, with the handle and feet embellished with gold. This vanity jar measures 4 1/4" tall and 4 5/8" in diameter. The box is in excellent original condition with only a bit of wear on the gold knob handle.
