This is a very nice piece representing a shopping bag for Bergdorf Goodman of New York. Bergdorf Goodman is a luxury retailer on 5th Ave, in midtown Manhattan. This large porcelain bag has a grayish lavender background with lavender print and edging. Open the bag to reveal a hand painted gift box on the inside of this box. This is a large bag as there are some that are called "medium bags'. This piece is in excellent condition with no paint loss, chipping or cracking of the porcelain. It measures 1 7/8" b7 1 1/2" at the base and is 2 15/16" tall to the top of the handle. Marked on the inside Limoges Imports, Peint Main (hand painted) and France. Limoges Imports has been a importer since 1990.
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 are highly collectible and make great gifts!! Silver by Patrick has the largest selection of Limoges pill boxes on Ruby Lane!!
