This is another Crummles England enameled pill box I have to offer. The picture on the top is an Victorian 19th century scene of a woman with two children. The woman or milk maiden has a yoke on her shoulders to carry the milk in the containers in front of her and offering the children a cup of it. Open the piece and on the inside lid is a drawing of a cat licking up spilled milk with Milk below Maids in script below. The base of this piece is a dark brown and the bottom has the Crummles hallmark with Made in England and Crummles & Co. around it. This measures 1 3/4" in diameter and is 1" tall. Perfect condition with no enamel loss.
I have always had an affinity for small pill type boxes. My love of small pill type boxes is well known. Whether the medium is porcelain, mixed metal, sterling silver, wood etc., I have a great collection of these as one can see in my store here at Ruby Lane. Limoges porcelain boxes especially, as you can tell by the great numbers I have to offer. These are highly collectible and make great gifts!! Silver by Patrick has the largest selection of Limoges pill boxes on Ruby Lane!!
