This is another spectacular Limoges, France piece I have to offer. The piece is so colorful with magenta, gold and white with the floral and leaf designs on the lid and each corner. The lid is somewhat heart shaped with if you can imagine it with rounded corners. Centered is an amazing floral display of various flowers with leaves on the perimeter. This sits on a gold background with the magenta on the edges with a gold leaf/vine display on top. Each of the three corners have a floral display on a white background. Of course I love the latch which is a woman with a bonnet and fan. Inside on the lid is a simpler floral display. The bottom is stamped Limoges, France. This measures 1 7/8" tall with the top measuring 2" wide at its widest. This tapers slightly to the bottom which is 1 1/2" wide. Excellent condition with no paint loss or chipping or cracking of the porcelain.
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!!
