Vintage Limoges Harp Trinket Box

Vintage Limoges Harp Trinket Box

$175.00

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.

Sure to charm with melodious tones, this delightful Vintage Limoges Harp Trinket Box is captivating in every detail. With an elegant undulating silhouette, striking hand-painted details on the harp's frame and strings, colorful tufted cushion and gleaming gold crown seem to bring the instrument to life. Lifting the charming harp from its perch atop the cerise-hued cushion reveals playful musical notes upon a staff hidden inside. Marked 'Peint a Main' (painted by hand) and 'Limoges, France' on the underside, the lyrical box is trimmed in antique brass with a clasp in the form of a classic lyre harp. Made entirely in France, this very grand box is certain to bring the eternal joys of music to your collection.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. 1.75"W at base x 3.75"H. 2" at widest point. In excellent vintage condition.
