Romantic Limoges, Etc.

This small gathering of cheery china and glass begins with a tiny porcelain egg-shaped Limoges box.

The inch and a half egg is nestled inside a pretty little lidless sugar bowl, also Limoges.

The lovely detail makes it a keeper perhaps to be used to present flowers or as a vanity catchall. Stray pieces of Limoges can often be found for just pennies.

But since delicate china requiring hand washing is a slow mover on the market these days, even sets of Limoges like this delightful one can be found for bargain prices.

A matching platter with no flaws is a bit of a rarity.

Bits and pieces of red transferware find their way into my cupboard as well.

The intricate scenes invite one into a fanciful utopian world.

Even more fun when one when one has visited the site depicted!

Do you have a few little seasonal celebrations to attend? Or maybe one to host? It seems like every week is just packed with them for awhile. In any case, I hope your week is grand!
Ciao! for now!
