This box was made for the European market. To find a box of this quality and size is very very rare. Boxes like this were made long long ago and take much more time and much more detailing because of the size. It's approximately 4 inches in length , approx. 2 inches in height approx.
2.5 inches in width. The coloring of the Box looks exactly like a baby grand. There gold braiding around the closure & the clasp is a music note. If you are the ultimate Limoges collector.
This is the box for you. The bottom of the Box reads Porcelain, Limoges France, Peint Mein, Edition Limited, 008/750. This is a large bottle.
Please remember all of these are handmade & hand painted and there are no two alike. You may see some imperfections but that is how the box is made, each box takes hours and hours to do.I have seen one done personally and it is amazing the intricacy and the steadiness of one's hand that goes into painting one of these boxes. A box like this would take a full day of work to paint.
These items that we are listing we're from a business we had to close. They have never been used. The bottom of the box clearly reads Script signed Pierre Arquie. Personally we own this box and feel this is the piece de resistance of Limoges for those who love cats and the piano.
It is the last of our larger pieces. We hope it finds a wonderful home and someone to enjoy for years to come. Please do not make ridiculous offers for this box as they will not be accepted this truly is a rare find. You may think to yourself how could one spend so much for a little box however those that are true collectors understand the value and will appreciate this. The pure white white of the inside and how much it glistens just as if you open the piano with the stand to hold up the piano so it can be shown open or closed and the kitty cat still stays standard.The gray kitty is on top of a pink blanket with raspberry color tiny flowers or perhaps paw prints. They even made the shape of the cat flawless with little pink ears and you could see the indentation or light-colored closed eyes just precious.
This is a very collectible piece. We guarantee all items to have no chips cracks flaws or any damages. This is a hand painted items so there are some imperfections that you may see in the painting but this is a beautiful box.
