Spectacular Le Tallec hand painted Limoges porcelain box. Measures about 6.3" x 6.3" and it is about 3 tall.
About twice the size of a typical "large" Le Tallec box. Very elaborately painted with Chinoiserie decorations in gold against a black ground. The black ground is a notoriously difficult decor to execute and is rarely seen. Interior is also elaborately decorated as shown.
Well signed as shown and guaranteed authentic. Date mark is ii for 1958, so it is 60 years old. Check out the pics and I don't think you could possibly be disappointed.
There is minimal wear to the paint, but the paint is at least 98% intact overall with no detracting losses. No chips, cracks, hairlines, fleabites, or repairs. No discoloration to the gilt ormolu metal fittings.
All the parts tight and securely fitted together, nothing loose. The item "HUGE 6.3x6.3 Le Tallec LeTallec Hand Painted Limoges Porcelain Chinoiserie Box" is in sale since Sunday, December 16, 2018.
