Collecting Limoges Porcelain ... A Connoisseur's Choice
It was during the 1870s that Limoges perfected its porcelain process, and the items produced then are considered some of the finest antique porcelain pieces ever made.

Limoges, is a French city southwest of Paris, which predates Roman times. Its physical placement, directly on the river Vienne, makes Limoges an easy, accessible stop; a necessary stop in those early years when journeys were more arduous than enjoyable.

Kaolin, an essential clay in the making of porcelain, was found just 18 miles South west of Limoges at St. Yreix. And, shortly after the first Limoges factory was established, Louis XVI bought it.

Today, antique Limoges porcelain trinket boxes, produced under the highest quality standards, are among the most highly prized porcelain collectibles.

However, there are several factors that contribute to the value of a piece of Limoges porcelain ...
- The factory where it was produced
- The Limoges porcelain mark
- How old it is; its condition; how complete a set is
- The quality of the decoration and the artist's signature
