    Can anyone PLEASE tell me what this is ??? Initially I thought that it was a flower frog but then I, somehow, got the idea that perhaps it was meant to keep some type of food cold if ice were added. Any help will be greatly appreciated,

      Perhaps it held scented items and was used as a room freshener.

      "Updated December 02, 2015.
      Marks shown here are circa 1907-1919, with both a green rectangular underglaze T&V white ware mark and a red bell overglaze decorating mark. There are many variations of these marks. The oldest exporting mark spells out Tressemann & Vogt ca. 1880s-1891.

      Tressemann & Vogt was one of many factories doing business in Limoges, France at the turn of the last century. They produced many pieces of white ware that were decorated elsewhere and decorated porcelain as well. Some references show Tressemanes spelling vs. Tressemann.

      SEAN68, Thank you! I loved the tie that you posted. I must have been half asleep and mistakenly hit "like" instead of "love." I changed it when I discovered my mistake.
