A. Klingenberg was an accomplished Limoges artisan painter when he opened his own porcelain factory and decorating studio in the Limoges region of France in the early 1880's. There does not seem to be a surfeit of information about Klingenberg or his company other than that he merged with Charles Dwenger's studio sometime in the late 1890's or very early 1900's. Klingenberg & Dwenger together manufactured porcelain products, produced decorated finished porcelain pieces, and exported them world-wide until 1910 when the company closed its doors.
This beautiful hand painted dresser/jewelry box was created by a talented artist in the company decorating studio or in a small home-studio environment, circa 1900. The motif is clusters and branches of pastel pink, darker pink and yellow rose blossoms nestled among shaded green, tan and gray leaves against a medium to light green background.
The round box measures 5 1/2" cross and stands " in height. The green mark is "AK over D over France". There are no cracks, chips or repairs. Gorgeous piece.
