"Limoges" is not a manufacturer of porcelain. It is a city in France near where in 1768 Kaolin clay was discovered and fine porcelainware began to be produced in and around Limoges. To quote Mary Frank Gaston (in her book ''A Collector's Encyclopedia of Limoges Porcelain' ) - Porcelain is pottery in its most exquisite form
The foundation of our store French Originals has been a labour of love and no more so for myself as when I first started researching an elegant small set of porcelain I got from a "Vide Maison", when the family was clearing out the house, after their Mother had passed on. Limoges porcelain has such a wonderful history that it is hard not to fall in love with it once you start looking.
