Antique Hand Painted CERAMIC MOSER JAR TRINKET Brass Hinge Chinapaint Sevres Vincennes

An antique Moser jar, often used for trinkets and decor, with a hand painted lid by a signed artist and brass fittings.

We are pleased to showcase this lovely antique moser box, or jewelry trinket box. It has a stunning hand painted white enamel lid, with the top and bottom joined by brass collars and hinge. Bottom has gold with some in a raised pattern, with a clasp in front. The French writing on the piece translates as 'model and exclusive decoration has the hand' which probably means the piece was crafted and decorated by hand. This may refer to the lid, as the bottom part looks to be transferware.

As to the exact age an origin, we are not sure. We do know the makers mark on the bottom (see photo) identifies the piece as a Vincennes or Sevres, but there were many companies that copied these makers, most of those dating from the late 1890s to the 20th Century. We are sure the top is hand painted and in any case this piece is not newer than probably the early 1900s.

This box stands 3 inches tall and has a base 3 1/2 inches in diameter. The piece weighs 1 pound, 2 ounces.

The moser is free of cracks and chips, although the brass needs to be polished and the gold trim on the bottom is at 70% or so.

In any case, this is a very nice piece, and would be fine addition to any antiques display in the home or business.
