Not only is this Limoges box super-cute, but it’s a

4. For the Coffee Lover Who Likes It with a Spoonful of Sugar
Precious in its simplicity, we think this Limoges coffee box is just divine. It’s a cup and saucer, featuring a full cup of black coffee. Coffee beans are hand-painted on the box, and the word “café” is featured on its side, giving this Limoges porcelain box a touch of Parisian elegance.
But what makes this piece truly delightful is the heavy
24K gold embellishments. The cup and saucer have these embellishments around
the rim, perfectly complementing the gold spoon. When you lift the saucer up,
you’ll find 2 sugar cubes painted on the inside. Yum!!!

clasp. Just lift it up and inside, you’ll find a hand-painted picture of
boiling water. We guess you could say this Limoges box is hot stuff!
