It also depicts a classical style drawing of a basket with a peony bouquet and flowing ribbon. A matching gold daisy lock make this little vintage exceptionally gorgeous.

Limoges Castel France 22K Gold
Very good vintage condition. The hinge works well and the box closes tightly. The gold shows signs of wear especially around the rims but nothing too serious that takes away the beauty of the treasure. The flowers are still very vibrant and upon inspection you can see traces of brushstrokes indicating this box was hand painted, and then glazed.
No chips or scratches or even loss of paints are spotted.
