This is another of over 100 Limoges, France porcelain pill box I have to offer! This pineapple box is in very good condition with no paint or enamel loss. The lid closes softer than most and doesn't have that distinctive "click" upon closing. This is a numbered piece at 385 of 2500. The pineapple is 2" tall and 1 1/4" in diameter at the center. Marked Limoges France on the edge of a blue oval. 385/2500 is painted below. There is a letter mark within the oval of possibly an HL, maybe an artists mark. This has a nice bee clasp that always makes me smile when I see this!
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!!
