THE VICTORIAN LIMOGES SHOP
Welcome to The Victorian Limoges Shop. We sell antique and vintage French Limoges items that come from well to do estates around North Eastern North Carolina. Limoges is a high quality hard paste porcelain from Limoges, France. Limoges, France is in the center part of France, south of Paris. Companies were making Limoges porcelain as far back as the 19th century. Many of our pieces are from the Victorian Era and many are hand painted. Hand painted Limoges porcelain is both beautiful and elegant. It was a status symbol for brides in the early 1900s.
Through the years, there have been 100s of companies producing porcelain in Limoges France. Our items are all marked with either a Limoges, France mark or a company mark. If it does not have a mark, we will not be listing it in this shop but in one of our many other shops. Most of our pieces have additional marks for exporters or the artist's signature or the company who did the hand painting.
Please read each description because we try to identify the company of origin of each piece by the mark. We will also identify a date time frame for when the piece was made by the type of mark or when the company was in business. If you have any questions regarding any piece or the marks, please feel free to contact us. We will also describe the condition of the piece as best we can. Please click on the picture to see it enlarge or to go to additional pictures of the piece.
Since porcelain is breakable, all pieces must be shipped with insurance so please choose a shipping method that includes insurance at checkout.
We hope you enjoy these pieces as much as we do.
