You just bought a limoges tea pot but in reality you were not planning on this...what a wonderful surprise.
It all began as you walked around Paris, absorbed the smells and sound of the city. You wander down the small cobblestone streets and gaze into the store window.
Look....there is a beautiful tea pot in that window but you are not sure what type it is.
The store owner graciously explains to you about this limoges tea pot and you want to know more. He suggests a trip to Limoges to learn more.
You may not be familiar with Limoges, France...
What make this place so special?
While you are browsing...
You may want to look at the stores selling the limoge tea pot. Perhaps you can stop and ask questions to the store owner about the pot.
You may be lucky enough to hear about the owner's relative in the past once worked at a Limoge factory.
They tell his story, handed down from generation to generation about the hard work and detail that went into his work and craft. But, at the end of the day, he just loved to come home to his family.
What is Limoges porcelain?
Did you know...
King Louis XVI then purchased the manufacturing location himself. He apparently was interested in making ceramic decorations for one of his properties but something known as the French Revolution got in his way! He most likely was not a happy King at this point!!
After the Revolution private factories were established. These included Bernardaud, as well as Haviland and Company.
Throughout the nineteenth century, these tea pots and other pieces were in high demand throughout France and the rest of the world.
Wow! Can you feel the history and gorgeous work?
