Take this stunning vintage Limoges egg perfume casket home and love it, from the esteemed  Goumot-Labesse Porcelaines factory of France.

This egg is approx. 60 to 70 years old and the hand applied gold gilt stenciling is beautiful, radiant with life and eye appeal.

The Goumot-Labesse factory is well known for making these exquisite French porcelain egg perfumes but there is little known about the company. Most owners say these eggs are about 100 years old but I believe they are from the 1950 era, give or take. If they are older, great, otherwise I stand by my estimated age based on the bit of unverified info I can find on this factory. This example is quite chic with it's snowy white ware porcelain decorated in lush gold stenciling and joyful roses. I've taken lots of photos for you but reflections were abounding and uncontrollable so please excuse them. The artwork is excellent and the paint is all intact for the most part, I really don't see any obvious or intrusive wear.

  

The brass metal casing and mechanical elements are in excellent condition, showing age appropriate patina which is beautiful the way it is. This egg visibly suffers no structural flaws, damages or negatives to mention. The egg opens and closes, as it should, a push down from the central metal rod releases the egg and catches it again when closing. Even though these eggs are resilient, I always support the egg when opening, as to minimize any possible stress on the hinge. The base supports the egg properly and measures 2⅞ in diameter. The egg stand proudly and may have the very slightest tilt, as is to be expected with these vintage egg caskets. In addition to the marvelous stenciling, the bottom edge is banded in more gold. The underside of the base is stamped with the factory logo, as shown, and clearly states the country of origin.

    

The interior maintains it's original 2 clear French perfume bottles that have a violin-like shape. The bottles, with dauber stoppers, are in excellent, usable condition and measure a wee 2 inches tall by ⅞ in width. These bottles sit inside the egg, secured by 2 rectangular shaped metal holders. The egg appears to be very well cared for and was probably never used, just admired as a decorative vanity accessory. As you can see, the outer metal has a lovely embossed design, adding more personality to the egg and it's structure.

                   

Although I don't readily acquire these perfume eggs, the few I've purchased have all been similar in size, measuring approx. 5 in total height by 2⅝ in width and bulge from front to rear. This example comes in a color that will blend with many different types of decor but the all gold applied workmanship does give it a bit of a formal overall appearance. This gorgeous vintage porcelain egg perfume casket will be a welcomed addition to your prized Limoges pieces or dress-up your dressing table with class and distinction.
