The box is of Big Ben from London. I went there in 2000 so to be honest I have no idea how much it was or how many of them were around. I should be heading back there in a year so I guess I’ll find out then. There was no trinket inside. Would have liked a mini Queen or something. 🙂
This one is from Paris and is of the Eiffel Tower. This one was about $11. The box has a trinket inside, which is a mini champagne bottle. Limoges boxes were very hard to find in Paris stores. Ignore my Louvre pen, I was just using it to prop up the box.
This box is from Egypt. It’s of my favorite scene. Isis is leading Nefertari. The box is covered with glyphs. There’s nothing inside this box. 😦 I bought it for about $10. Ignore my Louvre pen in the pictures, I was using it to prop up the box.
I have well over 100 pill boxes aka porcelain boxes in my room. I try to collect one from every new city, state, and country I visit. It’s hard though because many places don’t have. I also run into a different issue, which is some places have A LOT. I don’t want to buy multiple styles so it makes it hard to select just one. They usually run anywhere from $7-$10. I have many associated with travel, but I also have a lot that have nothing to do with travel. I have ones from Christmas, Hanukkah, and Halloween. I also have a bunch of random ones like a cell phone, pen, dress, etc.
Starting in November I am going to start posting a different travel pill box/Limoges box every Friday. I’ll post several pictures of the box, the little thing that came inside (if applicable), and other details I know about it. So if you have no idea what I’m referring to I’m going to post some Halloween ones I own below so you can get the picture.
