Some boxes for sale

I just love boxes - can't resist them!  So useful and pretty - perfect for storing the obvious such as hats, but for small precious objects too.

My favourite is the little green stamp box, but I also like the box with the mauve Limoges porcelain vignette - she's very elegant!


Nice little raffia and straw sewing box - now sold


a perfect starter sewing box for a child - it comes with all these bits and bobs, just as I found it.


A souvenir of Toulouse - once contained the famous Violettes de Toulouse scented goodies such as talcum powder and eau-de-parfum
Box now sold

This has a label on the top to send to a friend by post


This is a hat box, but the label has a furrier's name so I wonder if it was a fur hat that was stored here - especially for the summer, as the label suggests - now sold


It once was a brighter green but has faded with the passage of time...


This is a lidded box, again to hold a souvenir and this time from Cognac.  My guess is Cognac-filled chocolates - chocolate AND booze - nice combo! - now sold
 

It has a Limoges porcelain plaque of a very elegant Madame on the front


and my favourite, this little stamp box, with two compartments - now sold.





You can see more details here for all the items, except the green stamp box, which is here.

Have a good end-of-the-week!

  4. I love boxes too - is this one onyx?
    It's a lovely green.
    Yes my daughter told me the weather hasn't been great in France. I'm hoping it improves by the time I get there in June!
    Thank you for your kind comment Carol.
