This is just a lovely little piece, dated based on the mark to 1892 - 1907. IT is a French trinket box or perhaps a small jewelry casket. It measures about 3 1/4" x 2" x 1 3/8" tall. It is hand painted with delicate blue and purple flowers. The background is painted in a variety of pastel colors ranging from pink to green. The top has an edging of gold trim which has worn a bit on edges, as is captured in the pictures.
The stamped mark on the back reads T&V, Limoges, France, which indicates this was mad by Tresseman & Vogt; additionally, the number 605 is impressed on bottom. With the exception of the bit of wear to the gold trim, this porcelain box is in very good condition.
