Your Limoges Box Buying Guide


 
Crafts
Whether it is your daughter’s wedding day or your wife’s 50th birthday, Limoges boxes and figurines make for an exquisite and memorable gifting item. In addition to gifting them, Limoges porcelain boxes are also a collector’s favorite considering the viable investment they make over the years and how gorgeous they look when simply displayed on a shelf.

If this is your first time purchasing a Limoges box, you need to consider the following-

1.Identifying an Authentic Manufacturer – The growing demand for these items has resulted in the market today getting flooded with fake Limoges boxes. To make sure that you are not getting duped with a box or a figurine created by duplicate manufacturer, it is important that you get recommendations for some genuine vendors and manufacturers. Originally, vintage boxes were designed and manufactured only by royal commission. These rare varieties will come with a Fleur de Lys printed on them. The ones that are manufactured more recently, such as Rochard, Dubarry, Arotira and Haviland also come with exquisite craftsmanship and design.

2.The Decoration – While purchasing your first Limoges porcelain box another factor to consider is the decoration. If you are looking for varieties that come with immaculate hand décor, the boxes with the label ‘Peint Mein’ should be indication enough. You can also look for boxes that come with combinations of decals and hand work that are streaks are highlighted by hand.

3.Painting and Detailing – The authentic boxes are especially famous for their impeccable detailing where artists are able to explore the realms of their creativity to develop some very intricate designs by taking one color at a time. After one shade is applied, the box goes through a firing process before the artist uses another color. Hence, you will be able to identify an authentic box from a fake one that looks like paint is merely spread on.

4.Starting your Own Collection – If you wish to start your own collection of Limoges items, it is recommended that you start by looking for miniature tea and coffee sets designed by specific artisans. You may also choose a specific theme and start hunting for boxes that represent it. You will also be able to purchase some limited edition boxes which make for valuable pieces especially if you intend to sell them at an auction house at a future date. Authentic limited editions have unique mold designs that are created entirely by hand by single artisans.

Investing in genuine Limoges boxes proves to be a priceless investment that can be cherished by your loved ones. Purchasing these boxes may seem like a daunting experience but in reality is one of the most fascinating experiences you will have. You will be able to find these boxes online, at auction houses and also through your travels.
