LIMOGES PORCELAIN BOX WITH 'PV' POTTERY MARK QUERY
LIMOGES PORCELAIN BOX WITH 'PV' POTTERY MARK QUERY:- Hello, I just acquired a little ceramic and enameled pill box or Trinket Box at an estate auction that is clearly labeled on the back "Limoges France Peint Main P.V." I have seen PV France by itself on other items and am trying to find out what the P.V. stands for and of course the time period.
Thanks very much in advance!

Hello, and thank you for your enquiry.
These initials (P.V.) refer to PARRY & VIEILLE (Limoges, France) - ca 1970s to 1990s, a Porcelain Decorating Workshop (Atelier) that purchases Porcelain or China blanks from nearby Factories and has them decorated in their Studio for sale at Gift Shops and Visitor Trade outlets.
