A bit of history on this unique Limoges Porcelain Butterfly Pill Box. Limoges pill boxes were considered the height of gentility in European courts of the 18th century. Intricately made and elaborately decorated, the boxes became a traditional gift amongst nobility and were presented to commemorate both intimate family occasions as well as gifts from the state. Today, these fine works of porcelain art are just as prestigious and find themselves in the collections of celebrities, politicians and, of course, museums.
