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 charming chamberstick probably dates from the latter period. One can just picture a young girl lighting her way to her upstairs bedroom. The chamberstick measures 4 5/8”x 4”x 2 3/8”. It is hand painted with roses and forget–me-nots and edged with gold typical of the Rococo Revival style.
This piece is in excellent condition but some gold has rubbed off on the edge next to the finger ring, as one would expect with use over time. Please examine the pictures and don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
