This is a hard paste porcelain dresser set, all hand painted by the artist, and the date is circa 1905 to 1930. The artist selected different blanks by different makers, so some of the pieces are French Limoges, one piece is Bavarian, one piece is Austrian and a few pieces are unmarked as to the maker.
The set includes a large dresser tray, a small pin tray, a powder box, a pair of candlestick holders, a hair receiver and a perfume or cologne bottle with a stopper. The only flaw on the entire set is a tiny chip under the lid of the powder box, and a bit of gold wear where the stopper rests on the rim of the perfume bottle.
The ground is shaded green and blue with touches of pink and cream.
The artist painted yellow roses with green leaves on vines, along with a gold overlay pattern. The edges are trimmed in gold.
The pin tray is 6 1/8" by 4 1/8" and the maker's mark is "Favorite Bavaria."
The powder box if 1 5/8" by 2 ¾" and the maker's mark is Royal inside a wreath with O&EB above and Austria below. The artist's signature is also on the bottom.
The candlestick holders are 6 7/8" by 4 ¼". The maker's mark is PL underscored by Limoges France.
The hair receiver is footed. It is 2" by 4 ¼". The piece is unmarked.
The perfume bottle is 5 ¾" by 2 ¼". There is no maker's mark, just the number two impressed into the bottom.
The tray is 13 ½" by 10 3/8". The maker's mark is WG&Co with Limoges above and France below.
