I can find lots of information on Dermay, and the various glass powder boxes and some references to Taussant/Taussaunt, but nothing conclusive on a maker for this lidded box.
I thought perhaps her face may be similar to others seen on centrepieces for example which might give some clues to a maker maybe.
She's very statuesque in look.

Lovely!  The eyes are quite distinctive - very round and open.  I must have a look at other female powderbox etc figures to see if I can find similar.

Thanks Christine  :) I get a virus alert on that site   :-\ .
I have found lots of related questions about these types of boxes though including a few threads on here, and  as far as I can see the maker still isn't known.  I thought we may be able to come up with a match somehow to the centrepieces perhaps.  Her face is quite distinctive, she is what I would described as 'handsome'.

Honestly there is no virus. It wouldn't still be up if there was a virus. The people that run it are lovely. It's fine. There has even been a discussion on the forum about it. It seems to be a search issue that flags an account suspended; something that happened because of a late payment.

Join the forum and ask anyway; if nothing else they would appreciate a picture for the gallery, as she's not in there  http://www.chataboutdg.com/

To the best of my knowledge we (across the pond) have not uncovered a single piece of documentation as to who/whom Taussaunt may have been & I know the saerch has gone on for many, many years. Personally I think its entirely possible it was simply a name given to a line of vanity pieces (mostly powder jars) that were produced by a distribution company who  subcontracted pours from various glass companies. Example...the Clown powder that can be found marked Taussaunt was first produced as a candy jar #137 by the Beaumont Glass Co. in Morgantown, WV & Beaumont did not close until 1991 so perhaps Beaumont made the pour in a modified mold under subcontract. Same thing exists with Dermay. Example...the Dermay Puppy Love vanity piece which started its life as a kitchen spice box in milk glass in the late 1890s became Puppy Love in the 1930s in colored satin glass. Dermay was in all probability simply a company who subcontracted pours from companies who originally owned these molds or Dermay purchased these molds later & subcontracted who knows who to make the pours.

I got a virus alert too, and emailed them a while ago about it, but had no reply.
