This rare "Peint Main" (hand painted) Limoges France leopard trinket box is just as stunning as it is adorable! Some incredible craftsmanship went into creating this piece. From the intricate metal-work you won't find on similar models such as the tiger or cheetah, to the precision that went into this piece's fine paint job.
This treasure was very well preserved over the years, and the hardware is still very sturdy. There are absolutely no paint chips, fading, or damage at all. On the bottom of the leopard you will find the clear maker's mark, certifying that it is in fact hand painted, and identifying its origin. Limoges contracted a variety of artists for is designs, but this one is straight from the source.
On the metal hardware you'll notice this piece has a flower-shaped enclosure, whereas similar feline designs do not. Great care goes into fitting the brass rim to round enclosures such as this one, and requires more expertise than your typical square trinket box.
Truly a breathtaking treasure and is a vital piece to any Limoges collector.
