Customer Question
How can I tell...

How can I tell if I have a true Limoges box and it’s worth?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

I have a photo of it, it has Limoges on the bottom in gold, has a lid

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

It’s not small, not a trinket box

Hi I would be happy to help you. Please post a photo of the overall box and clear close up of the markings. Also if you happen to know the measurements. This will all help in giving you accurate value and information. To post the photos click on the paperclip or file upload button and follow the prompts. You may also email the photos to***@******.*** and in the email please put "for ladytanya65" so the company will know whom to forward the photos on to. Thank you I look forward to seeing the box and helping you.
