This is a gorgeous Limoges pill box in the shape of a lemon with leaves. This beautifully hand painted piece from Limoges, France is in excellent condition. The artist who hand painted this piece, as with many of the Limoges pieces, gives it a realistic look with such intricate detail. This box is 2" in length and 1 1/2" tall. IN excellent condition with no paint loss or chipping or cracking of the porcelain. Marked on the bottom Peint Main (hand painted), Limoges, France and SC conjoined which is one of the marks for DuBarry. DuBarry has been owned by the same family since 1973.
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!!
