Limoge, French Pottery

Added to my web shop 3 Dec this lovely Limoge salad plate. We have 2 of them for sale. Great for Christmas or New Years tableware. visit Cathys Curios for more details.

Mostly I sell English Staffordshire but it's always nice to put on a piece of french Limoge as most pottery from that area produced to a high quality finish. At the end of the 18th century, the substance Kaolin, needed to produce china, was discovered near the town of Limoges, France. Between 1700-1930 there were numerous pottery factories in Limoges city, France that were producing fine porcelain. However, few remain today and often Limoges factories only produced the blank product whilst others would design the patterns. Haviland Limoges tableware was once very popular in USA andthe Pieces & Sets were handed down through generations. More than 50% of porcelain in France, comes from Limoges.
