These other two pieces of vieux Paris porcelain seems to be a sugar box or sucriere and a biscuit box or a tea box. They seem similar because of the blank, but the sucriere surely is newer than te previously posted tea pot (about 1870-1880) look here http://cf.collectorsweekly.com/stories/IstOWTNh2ddC6b8SqpGIzw.jpg.
The paste is thiner and translucid, it is more exact and the definition of the details (the finial and the woman head or tete). It is also marked with thre III instead of II that bears the tea pot. The bigger one is much older, the color of the paste is not so white, the shapes is not at 90 grades angle, and some literature says that lyons head were popular durin 1820-1830. Thanks Katherine, racer, jscotto, Sean, Sklo, Mikel and Racer4 for the loves and comments to the teapot.
