"Paris porcelain" is the very white porcelain made in France from about 1770 to 1870. The name "Vieux Paris" or "Old Paris" for these wares was first used by collectors in the late 19th century. In the late 1700s, the Sevres factory near Paris was established as France's national factory with "royal privilege." Its porcelains were top-quality, with original shapes and lavish decorations. Other makers near Paris soon began making similar porcelain pieces. Before long, more than 35 small factories were selling what is now called Paris porcelain. Almost all of their wares were unmarked. The factories quickly updated their patterns to keep up with the latest fashions

An adorable German porcelain souvenir pin tray trinket dish with a pink pawed white teddy bear on one end and a "bottle" on the other, the bottle could be meant to display like a phonograph as it appears as if the bear is positioned to look like its listening to it. Painted green with gold lettering on the tray reads "souvenir Sioux City Iowa" (faint). Not marked but have seen others of similar fashion marked with faint marks so its safe to consider the mark has faded over time.
Measures: 5" Long 4" Tall
Condition: NO chips, cracks, or repairs. gold writing is faint and there once was possibly a cork plug in the "bottle"
