This is a porcelain candy dish made by Leclair Limoges of Limoges, France. They

were a porcelain decorating workshop that operated from 1946 to 1987.

Known for small leaf-shaped and shell-shaped candy dishes with elablorate hand painting.

Most of these dishes have a value of $40 to $50 retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local) , Wanelo.com, http://www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com,
Ebay and letgo.com (local).

You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.

Please do click the stars now for this one (bonuses are also welcome!), it is very important for me
to get good feedback for answering.
