Limoges Boxes Express 240 years of Tradition and French Romanticism. Limoges Porcelain Boxes are quite the marvel. These delightful little boxes began to be made for Royalty of 17th century France. They used them as places to store expensive jewelry, important love letters, trinkets, herbs, pills, and snuff. At that point in time, the Limoges Trinket Boxes were apart of their costuming, as it was high prestige to carry a Limoges Box around in one's pocket.; as only the most esteemed could do so.
The work in creating a Limoges Box is quite intricate and time consuming. The perfect mixture of Kaolin and other minerals of the master porcelain alchemist has to be formulated perfectly mixed, in order to create the fine translucent quality that makes a Limoges porcelain China piece so sought after. The artisans who hand-crafts them, works hours in soft sanding the porcelain to perfection. Then comes the hand-painting, which can take days of painting, firing multiple times, and glazing on the more intricate pieces.
Once the playthings of the wealthy, French Limoges porcelain boxes were originally designed as snuff boxes to hold tobacco. The boxes later evolved to contain love letters, rings and other precious gifts/jewelry for special occasions and holidays. But, a Limoges box is not simply a box - Limoges boxes and figurines have become enduring symbols of love, given to friends and relatives, and also passed down to children and grandchildren as lasting family mementos. The traditional and modern French Limoges porcelain boxes are the products of centuries of painstaking porcelain perfection. Many designs are exclusive one-of-a-kind works of art that will delight the recipient. As apart of our Christmas holiday , these French Limoges porcelain boxes and figurines speak of an unsurpassed quality and timeless value.

Craftsmanship. Beauty. Timelessness. The soft, undulating lines painted upon French Limoges porcelain boxes and figurines capture the imagination.
