Miniature porcelain Limoges trinket box. The William Guerin Company of Limoges, France began in the early 1870s and made a lot of table china and white wares (undecorated), and these were exported abroad, especially to the United States, where the pieces were often decorated by amateur china painters. Variations of this often-seen backstamp were in use between 1891 and 1932 by the William Guerin Company. This particular mark was only used on the company’s “white wares,” which are sometimes called “blanks”. Because there is only one mark on this item, we must infer that a gifted amateur painted this wonderful tiny box. Guerin used a different mark on its wares decorated in-house. This sweet little charmer measures 3.25 inches long, 1.875 at widest, 1.25 to top of domed lid. In very good condition: it appears that some of the glazing may have worn off...or not. Lovely colors. Will be perfect in a doll display or in a dollhouse as well as in a collection of vintage china. A thoughtful gift for a collector.
