Limoges Giveaway

Just in time for the holidays, a lovely, little, Limoges giveaway!

This miniature Limoges plate has a diameter of 1-1/2" and is in excellent condition. It is set in a small  plate stand, for sitting up on a table, or hanging on a wall.  The color is a deep raspberry with a gold gilt rim and gilt scene.  The scene is a maiden and her suitor; he is on bended knee, she appears to be surprised.

If you are a lover of Limoges, or miniatures, or, all things French, you will love this tiny treasure.  To enter the giveaway, all you have to do is tell us what you think the suitor is saying to the maiden!  The winner will be announced on Friday, December 10.

Bonne chance!

P.S.  This would also make a lovely Christmas tree ornament!
