Set of Victorian era porcelain trinket boxes.
Hand painted violets adorn these boxes. The patterns are NOT identical, demonstrating the hand work.
The boxes also have a raised border with tiny dots that gives these a wonderful texture and feel.
No makers mark, but these came from Germany as they were given as a gift from there.
***UPDATE Jan 2017: It has been brought to my attention that these may in fact be Nippon Moriage. http://www.ebay.com/gds/NIPPON-PORCELAIN-A-GUIDE-TO-MORIAGE-BEADED-WARE-/10000000001393277/g.html
There is some slight wear on the un-glazed rims, but no chips or cracks or crazing.
Each box measures aprox 3" tall by 4 1/2" at it's widest point.
Perfect for jewelry or any kind of trinkets.
I have not seen this pattern anywhere and having a set is rare. Don't miss out on this wonderful collectors item! Keep one, give one as a gift to a sister maybe!
