Limoges covered egg shaped trinket box in Birds steal Rothschild Pearls motif measures 3" by 5". Right up Front it is as is because on the inside rim (can't be seen while closed) there is a chip about 1/8" inch at most. I took a picture of it. Auctioneers used to call this a flea bite because they felt; it isn't perfect but won't matter to everyone. If you are a purist; there's nothing for you here but it you want a excellent Limoges egg at drop dead pricing; read on Macduff. The egg is decorated in the Rothschild's bird steals pearls motif. Rumor had it; Mrs. Rothschild thought someone had stolen her pearls and the servants found birds playing with them in the tree.
I've had tons of these boxes and visited Limoges factory when we shopped France. They make beautiful shelf pieces. If it doesn't sell; I will continue to enjoy it because which of us if flawless after 50 years. Signed on the bottom Limoges France and gorgeously painted on all sides.
