Vintage Limoges Kitty in Knitting Basket Trinket Box

Vintage Limoges Kitty in Knitting Basket Trinket Box

$225.00

This playfully colorful Vintage Limoge Kitty Trinket Box is a lovely example of the whimsical joys of Limoges boxes, with a frisky, mischievous cat peering out from its cozy perch within a porcelain knitting basket. Painted to great effect and entirely by hand in France, this exceptional trinket box displays an intricately rendered basketweave pattern finished with an articulated antique brass handle and trim culminating in a charming bow-shaped clasp. Balls of yarn with knitting needles are seen opposite kitty, whose very next move could prove their undoing - quel désastre!

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.

Darling and light-hearted, this Limoges box is sure to be a treasured addition to your precious collection or make a cheerful gift for your favorite kitty or knitting enthusiast.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. 3.5L" x 1.75W" x 2.75H". In nice vintage condition.
