223 Egremont Plain Road PMB Box 148
North Egremont, MA 01230-2284
917 881 4973
Measurements: 3" tall on an oval base: 2" x 1 3/8"
Beautifully hand painted (no painting on the interior).
The female bust suggests a 1920's Flapper Girl with serious attitude! But this is just my perception.
With the traditional bronze trim at the join of the two parts of the box.
The bottom of the box shows the decorator's initials M C and the words "Peint Main" as well as the genuine "Limoges, France" mark.
I date the box to the 1950's according to the estate from which it was purchased.
