Interesting facts about Limoges hinged boxes!
The porcelain and the painting of the Limoges boxes are done by a team of artists and painters in Limoges, France. The clasp, (including the metal part that surrounds the box itself) is made in Paris by another team of artists.
Limoges, France is world-famous for its porcelain. Limoges boxes, small trinket or pill boxes, have been meticulously crafted in the Limousine region of central France since the 1700s. Today, very few select craftsmen are left in Limoges who still create these labor-intensive art pieces exactly in the same manner as in the 1700s.
History of Limoges Boxes:
The City of Limoges has been known for its designs and art works since the 12th Century. The unique white chalk found in the Limousin region of France, was discovered around 1771. The 1st Limoges factory began under the direction of the Comte d'Artois, until the king of France himself assumed it's direction in 1784. Limoges porcelain, which was known to the Nobles as Porcelaine Royale, was heartily collected by members of the King's Court and most popular amount the French aristocracy. The porcelain has known several changes, but its recipe is authentic and intact, and its mythical tradition has been passed on to our present time and presented to you with these boxes.
