This is a nice solid box. There is a bit of sticker residue on underside as well that I forgot to clean off before photography. The makers mark has been hard to identify.
I've yet to confirm who made the box. It feels a bit more substantial than most Limoges boxes. There is no clasp so the lid can be easily opened and closed. The cobalt is a very deep blue, deeper than most cobalt. Fresh from a large collection of over 100 fine Limoges boxes from a historic coastal MA estate.
The estate is called The Waldingfield in Ipswich, MA in case you're interested in seeing it. I'll be listing many other Limoges boxes and Le Tallec Limoges items in the coming weeks and months.
