As a very devoted Francophile my heart skipped a few beats when I found these lovely Limoges boxes! I have never found a set! I also have personally never found any with writing! How precious are these intricate little pieces of art! While translating the French I opened one of the boxes and found a folded up piece of paper. To my delight the previous owner had written the translation down and tucked it safely away inside! That is the magic that happens from time to time while treasure hunting! I tucked the paper right back where I found it for the new owner to enjoy! They are both in excellent vintage condition.
