Vintage Limoges Elephant Trinket Box

Vintage Limoges Elephant Trinket Box

$195.00

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 handsome elephant trinket box is a charming example of the joys of Limoges boxes. Painted entirely by hand in France, a handsome elephant takes centerstage on the lid of this oval shaped box as if he was centerstage at the circus' big top. With an antique brass clasp also in the form of an elephant, this absolutely charming trinket box is sure to be an exotic addition to your collection.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. 1 1/4" H x 2 1/8".
