Pls Help w/this Powder Box- THX!
« on: July 03, 2005, 05:59:10 PM »
Hi Everyone!
Hoping that someone might be able to help me with this blue powder box. Is it considered Bristol, Victorian or what? It's about 3-1/2" tall and 3-1/2" wide. Any ideas as to age, possible origin, etc. is very much appreciated!
Thank you,
Lenore :lol:

French Vierzon?
Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

Pamela can you please check this selection & see if you recognise anything? It contains one or two Czech and German pieces - and several powders of unknown manufacture. I think some of it may be Belgian, some of it may be by Schreiber&Neffen, some of it may be Vierzon.

Hi all,

Height appears right for Thouvenin Vierzon, who were based around 100km from here, but cannot find the precise pattern, which may be "decor bouquet sans feuille d'or". Pattern numbers could be 335/397/405, and the gilded brass-work is in keeping.

See pk-2005-3-16-mb-vierzon-1914.pdf

Is the glass blue or is the blue color a thin wash?

It looks like powder boxes/trinket boxes made by Mt. Washington and further decorated by C.F. Monroe (of Wavecrest fame).

Your picture of the base is inoperative.
