This is a spectacular piece I feel!! The Limoges, France porcelain pill box in the shape of a drum is in very good condition. The top of the drum has a wonderful hand painted muskets, drum, flag and cannon balls with the dates of 1789 and 1989 for the 200 anniversary of the French Revolution. This piece is in very good condition with no chipping or cracking of the porcelain and very slight wear to the top rim from use. There is slight discoloration on the bottom rim where it has been used as you can see in the one picture. Check out the latch in the one picture!! This piece is 1 5/8" in diameter and 12 1/4" tall. Painted on the bottom peint main (hand painted), Limoges, France and P.V, for Parry Vielle.
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!!
