Violets Box and dish

Today I went through the house looking for more items with violets. This French violets box was displayed high atop one of the shelves in the master bedroom. I bought this darling little box at an antique shop a few years ago. The little violets dish probably had a lid at one time, but I adopted it even though it didn't have one, I just liked the handpainted violets on it! I think it once was a little china powder box.

I also found a set of four nesting leaf shaped nut dishes with violets painted on them. These had been my mother's. They match the tea pot nicely, but they are Lefton china.
