This is a beautifully decorated small Limoges, France box that was purchased as a limited edition.
It is a genuine Limoges box but not an antique one. It was made in the same way they were made for the last couple of centuries. It is painstakingly hand decorated with gold leaf and multi-colored enamels to create the beautiful morning glories, tulip forget-me-nots, and roses on the lid.
The box is in superb condition with a working hinge and a snappy sound when closing. Even the inside of the lid and the bottom of the box are hand painted with a bouquet of flowers. The gold leaf contrasts richly with the deep burgundy ground color.
The box measures 2 3/4" x 2" x 1 1/8" high. The gold garlands around the sides are interspersed with raised enamel dots or 'jewels'. Pretty from all angles.
