Good Evening Allen,
Thank you for sending over those photos.
Unfortunately, your piece is a modern reproduction of a Limoges covered bon bon or nick nack dish produced circa 1970's. Many of these knock off pieces were produced in Asia, which is where I would almost guarantee is where this piece was produced.
This is not to say the piece is without value. If you were to attempt to resell the covered dish, you would be looking at a resale value of closer to 15-25USD for the piece in excellent condition. Cracks, chips or crazing would detract from the resale value.
I hope this information was helpful to you today.
Any feedback you can leave for my service would be much appreciated.
Thank You,
