What are Limoges Boxes?!
Limoges signifies a type of porcelain crafted in Limoges, France, a region where the clay is rich with deposits of kaolin and feldspar and can produce a very desirable grade of porcelain. Many companies manufacture these tiny hinged boxes in Limoges, France and American importers began marketing them here in the United States in the 1950's. Originally made popular in the 17th and 18th centuries, tabatieres, as they were often called, were designed to hold snuff, perfume, or tiny gifts. These charming boxes were especially favored by royalty! Today's hinged enamel boxes vary in price, quality, and exclusivity. They are priced from $5 to $600 and higher! The high-end pieces are generally produced in editions ranging from 50 to 500. Boxes today can be found in the shape or image of just about anything with themes such as Travel, Babies & Children, Love & Romance, etc. They make for great gift-giving items - email us if you are looking for a certain theme or special piece.
