Limoges Porcelain NZ

Limoges Porcelain


"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 'Collector's Encyclopedia of Limoges Porcelain' ) - Porcelain is pottery in its most exquisite form -  
Here at French Originals we have rare and collectable French Limoges porcelain, seldom seen in New Zealand, these pieces were made for the french market, each piece we have sourced privately.
