Vintage Limoges Pig Trinket Box

Vintage Limoges Pig Trinket Box

$250.00

Limoges trinket boxes have a long and fashionable history dating all the way back to the mid-1700s. The small, hinged boxes were tiny, labor-intensive works of art made with impeccable craftsmanship and hand-painted in exquisite detail. These curious little artifacts have held a number of fashionable uses over the ages: under Louis XIV these small boxes were used to hold a lock of lady's hair or small poem, but were more commonly used as snuff boxes, and later as pill boxes or simply as decorative figurines. They are still sought after today for their romance, nostalgia, and fine beauty.

This delightful Limoges box is in the form of a stern, matronly pig who clearly runs a very tight household. (Lazy husbands and unruly piglets beware - this porcine matron is not in the mood!) She is a wonderful example of the humor often found in these whimsical treasures.

Entirely hand-painted in France with a pastel patterned dress and a striped apron, Madame Cochon neatly closes with an antique brass flower clasp and is sure to bring a happy grin to your collection!


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In very good vintage condition. 4" H x 1.25.
