This is a Tressemanes and Vogt Limoges (France) powder jar that was

painted in 1896 by a hobby painter named McKnight. It was common for

ladies to buy black china and paint it themselves. This power jar would

have been part of a matching dresser set that would have included a tray,

hair receiver, and pin dish.

The value of this jar is $45.00 retail.
Some sites that I recommend for selling are,,, Ebay and
You can also go to or and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
