A porcelain box has been formed in the shape of gorgeous pineapple. A yellow background provides the canvas for the hand painted brown and black spines the pineapple is known for. Beautiful green stalks shoot out of the top. The clasp, of course, is a classic Limoges flower. Inside the box, the marking denotes that this box was made for Tiffany & Co. The clasp is formed in the shape of a flower.

A dainty Limoges porcelain box, easily held in the palm of one’s hand, is the epitome of miniature beauty, of craftsmanship par excellence. Originally created to hold snuff, but also candies and other cherished objects, these miniature boxes became symbols of their times. They reflected, perhaps more than any other everyday object, the social mores, decorative skills, technological advances, and even politics of days gone by. Today, Limoges boxes are used to mark life’s special occasions or collected as prizes of lasting splendor.
