    Picked this pretty up a couple of weeks ago. I have looked and looked and cannot find this exact mark and all the crossed arrows are starting to look alike. No hits for Decor Chatelaine. This is just a little something that I picked up to give to as a birthday gift (with a gift inside), but it would be nice for the resident collector to know something about the gift. Although lately I have been stumped a lot!

      I found a couple of things...
      Chatelaine - Wikipedia, the free Châtelaine (French châtelaine, wife of the lord of a castle)
      Hope that helps.I couldn't find the mark anywhere, though. I have found this reference helpful, though I didn't see yours there:
      Good luck!

      Ooooh. Love the marks website! Isn't it funny that we can't find it? You would think with all the resources it would be easier. You are a doll for looking Upstate, thanks.

      I too have things with same mark. It could be of a German maker also known as or called 'Kalk' Porcelain of Eisenberg in Thuringia (1900 - 1973), formerly Geyer & Körbitz (1890 - 1900). I am only suggesting this, I am not an expert on this subject! I hope your box is the real thing and not an imposter! It is very pretty. Does it have that special feeling of being old & genuine? My Grandmother had awsome collection of Battersea and I couldn't keep my hands off any of it!

      Hiya Beaux. I will dig into that Kalk tip. No, I am thinking a 50-ish repro, but a super nice repro. It doesn't feel "thin" enough, if you understand my feeling.
    5. BeauxPurdy BeauxPurdy, 9 years ago
      I can't take the credit for tip, it is Manikin who has been so helpful with identifying and answering so many of my questions!
      And, Yes, that feeling of "dainty-ness" but still being solid enough to hold without fear of breaking when you open the lid. Or that certain "smoothness" that highlights the color instead of the reflective shellac-y, shiny-ness of newer boxes. But....Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't turn down a newer box! I find them quite beautiful & charming too!

      If you look at the mark of the crossed arrows it could be a Japanese piece decorated in France. It certainly looks like Limoges.
    7. AmberRose AmberRose, 9 years ago
      Frankieboy, yes it really does look similar. Wonder if it makes a difference with the two vs three feathers on the arrow? Hmmmm...
      Thank you for the link, it gives me another thread to pull :0)
