This is one of three Limoges, France porcelain boxes that we have acquired from a private collection. This one is quite lovely with large figural rabbit crouched on top. There are rabbits and then there are ROCHARD hand painted rabbits. Rochard&tm; being of the finest craftsmanship with uniquely designed hinge and latch combinations, designs and vivid use of color. The choice of colors of this box, the gray lop-eared bunny with tinted pink ears and white puff tail, all outlined in black, the yellow eyes highlighted in orange and also accentuated with black outline; I like particularly the green bottom (suggested green grass) with the attached bronze trim around the box opening rim edges; is all a nice combination of color and very pleasant. At the opening is a rambling bow clasp. It and the hinges are secure. This would most definitely be a piece one would like to add to their collection. Rabbit measures 3 inches long by 1 ¾ inches wide by 1 ¾ inches high. Oval box at bottom measures 2 ½ inches long by 2 inches wide and is ¾ inch deep. Total height of piece is 2 ¼ inches high. The interior is crisp white, it is clean and marked: Limoges France Peint Main ROCHARD. Painted on the underside of the box is a hand painted flower. Box is in excellent condition with no scratches. Rochard &tm; has been synonymous with Limoges, France porcelain boxes since 1973. Sales tax must be collected for buyers living in or picking up in New York State. Local tax rate applies.
