Early Hand-painted Limoges 

Porcelain Snuff/Pill Box

This is a very rare and authentic hand-painted Limoges porcelain snuff or pill box from the late 1800's.  It has brass hinges and working tools clasp and is signed "Limoges France, Peint A La Main."  It depicts a Masonic Temple with its winding staircase and the porch pillars of Boaz and Jachin.  The Square and Compasses is painted both over the door of the Temple and on the floor entering the same.  The Phoenixmasonry Museum Gift Shop is proud to carry a reproduction line of these Limoges boxes which can be seen by (clicking here).
