Description

Beginning in the 1870s "blank" china pieces were imported from all over Europe, mostly the hard porcelain unique to the Limoges region of France. China painting became a very popular pastime beginning in the 1870s and lasting up until World War I when the importation of Limoges blanks was very limited. Just like knitting parties today, women very rarely painted china alone. Groups would gather weekly to work on similar pieces and show off their handiwork. China painting became so popular that even Caroline Scott Harrison, wife of President Benjamin Harrison held such gatherings at the White House. Blanks could be purchased at fine department stores and studios by these women who probably had enrolled in a local china painting club or society. It was there that they would take painting lessons and progress to completing entire sets of china service (found in destinationaustinfamily.blogspot.com) Here is a collectible Antique French porcelain hand-painted rose-motif vanity tray with Artist Hobbies sing, I believed.
