The Rococo Revival style of Old Paris porcelain was very popular in the United States in the late 19th century. Often people taking the Grand Tour shipped pieces back to America and American merchants had crates brought in for sale in the stores of America’s large cities. Mostly unmarked, Old Paris was manufactured by more than thirty porcelain makers based in the city between the mid 1700’s until around 1870.

This lovely scalloped brass edged box probably dates from that later period. It looks like Limoges and may very well be as those porcelain makers did produce unmarked pieces at this time. It measures 3 ¾” x 2 3/8”x 1 7/8”. It is decorated with whimsical floral arrays and gold flourishes.

The porcelain is in excellent condition—no chips, crazes or cracks— but the box lid does not lie flat on the left side when the top is closed. One of the hinges may have been repaired. Nevertheless, it is a lovely piece with a wonderful shape. Please examine the pictures and feel free to email me if you have any questions.
