This impressive little egg-shaped Limoges box features cobalt blue, burgundy & 24K gold trim and a lovely pink & purple floral design. Inside, each half features 24K gold painted leaves. One factor into the value of a Limoges box is the number of colors used. The colors for painting porcelain are natural pigments mixed with special mineral oils. Various colors require being fired at different temperatures and, therefore, the more colors used in painting a Limoges box necessitates much more time and effort, as well as requiring many separate firings. Also, the amount of gold used in a Limoges box can increase the value of the piece.
The beautifully detailed golden metal stand is about 3.5” tall. This outstanding & hard-to-find hanging collectible Limoges box is complimented with intricate hand-fitted metalwork and an ornate floral clasp. Crafted of fine French porcelain and hand-painted by master artisans entirely in Limoges, France with the insignia of the artist inside.
DIMENSIONS: Egg is just over 2” W, 1-1/2” D, 1-1/2” H
Egg is in very good vintage condition; stand has a few tiny bends along bottom edge & the hanging loop of stand is a bit skewed, but this could easily be carefully straightened by new owner (please see all photos).
See last photo for more Limoges boxes I have listed separately (subject to prior sale).

Returns and exchange details
As veraviola sells almost exclusively vintage & antique items, it is likely nothing will be "like new." I strive to mention any wear, soiling or flaws. However, since condition is often subjective, I will also do my best to provide very detailed photos for your examination. Please look at all photos and note listed measurements. But please contact me with any problems or concerns ~ I do want your experience with Vera Viola to be memorable in a good way!
Jewelry is sold on an 'as is' basis, so please ask any questions before purchasing. I provide multiple photos, measurements, and a detailed description.
Please convo me immediately with your reason if you are wanting to return any purchase. Buyer is responsible for return postage. The item would need to be shipped via a tracked, insured method AND received back by me in its original condition and original packaging within 14 days of the transaction (domestic orders). If these conditions are met, I will then refund the payment (less the original shipping charge if shipping upgrade was chosen).
While my home is smoke & pet free, please remember that the items I sell lived somewhere else for many years before they came home with me! Also, as a rule, I generally just dust off vintage items and send them on their way.
Veraviola doesn’t sell or share your information.
