Today we are delighted to offer for sale a most lovely antique Limoges porcelain jewelry box! This petit treasure is too pretty for words! Expertly and intricately molded in a rectangular casket shape, this elegant trinket or jewelry box is precisely hand-painted with a lavish center medallion motif of multi-color flowers. The background is polychromed in a delicate and vivid shade of Sevres blue, also know as as the “bleu celeste” (heavenly blue) or “le bleu de roi” (Louis XV’s blue), with overlay rococo-style gilded designs. Although unmarked but for the artist’s signature, the fine materials and expert craftsmanship are no doubt the work of Limoges. The box presents beautifully and is in very good antique condition, with very minor shelf wear from being on display. There is a very small (and hard to notice) chip along the ormolu trim on the upper left corner of the top of the box. A refined objet d’art, this substantial piece will add 18th century grace and will bring Gallic elegance to any room in your home or business. A special piece for a special buyer!
