This is certainly a cute piece. The gilded edged plate has a puff pastry in the center with chocolate dripping down the sides. The added spoon just makes this such a realistic looking piece. Open the box and on the bottom inside is a cup of coffee. This piece is in excellent condition with minor wear. There is no paint loss,chipping or cracking of the porcelain. Painted on the bottom is Limoges, France, PV, Marque Deposee and Peint Main (hand Painted). The PV hallmark is for PARRY & VIEILLE, an artist workshop in Limoges, France (C. 1970's-1990's). This piece measures 2" wide across the plate and 1 1/2" tall.
I have always had an affinity for small pill type boxes. My love of small pill type boxes is well known. Whether the medium is porcelain, mixed metal, sterling silver, wood etc., I have a great collection of these as one can see in my store here at Ruby Lane. Limoges porcelain boxes especially, as you can tell by the great numbers I have to offer. These make great gifts as well!!
