This is an absolutely incredible hand-painted porcelain box with match striker from the turn of the century, marked T & V Limoges France. The inside top of the box has a striker that has been fired into it. The pansies are the most beautiful pastel shades of light purple and yellow, and the soft background has muted light purple tones and green leaves. I haven't seen another piece like this. It measures about 4.0 inches long x 1.50 inches tall and is in good antique condition with one tiny chip on the rim of the bottom piece.
This special gem has been part of our personal collection and has been stashed away in a trunk for over 30 years. It's now time to take it out and share with everyone, so enjoy!
