From a Newport, Rhode Island estate, we are now offering a collection of four Limoges boxes formerly owned by a collector with a discriminating eye. Included in this listing is a group photo of the collection from this estate, and the individual item numbers for your review.
This beautifully hand painted box features a surprise inside that makes it a great find for the Limoges collector or sewing enthusiast!
A colorful bouquet of flowers framed in gilt adorns the top of this lovely, round, robin's egg blue box. The box itself sits in a scroll pattern brass frame, with a sweet bow clasp. When opened, the surprise is revealed, as the box contains a matching hand painted thimble. The bottom of the box is marked LIMOGES FRANCE, and the artist's script Peint Main, with the initials M.L. Remarkably, the artist even painstakingly hand painted the words Peint Main Limoges France. M.L. inside the thimble! Fabulous attention to detail. The box measures approximately 2" (d) x 1" (h). The thimble measures 7/8" (d) x 7/8" (h).
