    I have deciphered most of what is written on the bottom of this piece, but I can't figure out the words just before Paris France.

    So far I got drawn & painted entirely by hand by ---- Paris France.

    I am assuming it is possibly the artists name, but I can't figure it out.

    I just wanted to make sure that the letter for dating this box is an L & that would correspond to the year 1946.

    That would be the way I would interpret it. I have always been fond of Le Tallec boxes. As it becomes less and less common to find hand painted porcelain items Le Tallec keeps chugging along. I have some scattered around here somewhere. I have a room where I intend to display my French porcelain collection but I never seem to get around to getting it organized. And now that the ceiling has fallen in (literally) it may take me even longer to get anything done.

    Unless I am missing it, I don't see the Limoges mark. Regardless they do not tend to hold the same appeal to most Limoges box collectors as the boxes actually made and decorated in a Limoges studio. They do have appeal to an aspirational market as boxes with a Tiffany or Bonwit Teller connection seem to get higher prices. These are also one of the few items you can list on eBay that can still generate multiple bids. It's a lovely box.

    Thanks for the confirmation Don! :kiss::kiss:

    There is no Limoges mark on it as far as I can see.

    I feel for you on you plans for your French porcelain room. I have the same problem with my perfume bottles. :bag::bag:

    Although they are all in cabinets, I need to rearrange the bottles on some of the shelves so that they display better. I also got a huge brass & glass table top display recently that is going to be perfect for my Czech filigree bottles, but I just can't seem to get around to moving them from the multiple small ones. :(:rolleyes::rolleyes:

    It sounds lovely! I have a very small collection (about a half-dozen) French bottles and one tiny filigree and rhinestone Czech bottle.
