Appraisals & Marks

Authentic Limoges Porcelain Box Markings

Treasure hunters are often trying to find a collectible that is not only beautiful, but also authentic. Many porcelain pieces are labeled as "Limoges" or "French Limoges" are not authentic Limoges from France. Authentic French Limoges is a porcelain item manufactured in Limoges, France made with the clay Kaolin. When determining if the trinket limoges box that you have is of value, you can authenticate that it was manufactured in Limoges and determine the time frame in which it was made by checking the mark on the bottom or back of the piece. Below is a list of the most common and popular Limoges Factories and their markings. If you cannot find what you are looking for below it is beyond the scope of Limoges Boutique to help you. Limoges Boutique only retails modern Limoges pieces. I would suggest finding an Antique Limoges Porcelain dealer for help.
