A porcelain box has been fashioned in the shape of a champagne bottle from France. The green and gold bottle chills in a bucket of ice.The box clasp is a grape clutch, which adds extra meaning to this delightful piece.
A miniature 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.
