Its physical placement, directly on the river Vienne, makes Limoges an easy, accessible stop; one that would even be called necessary in those early years when journeys were more arduous than enjoyable. Limoges built its first porcelain factory a mere six years after the initial find of the kaolin.Unlike many American towns which found themselves dependent on one industry to fuel the economy, an industry that dried up for one reason or another, the artisans of Limoges didn’t simply curl up and die because the trends had changed. Just as the call for limoges enamel pieces dwindled, kaolin, an essential clay in the making of porcelain, was found just 18 miles southwest of Limoges at St. The kaolin is combined with pulverized feldspar and quartz.And that’s natural given that the elements (including the traces of soil) needed to produce these delicate creations can be found only in Limoges, France.The museum features some 11,000 pieces, though not all porcelain.It didn’t take me long to find something that could commemorate just about any holiday, major life event, and collectible category (mini hats, shoes and bags, for example).Even the women from the Moulin Rouge have been spun off into a Limoges collectible.
By 1861, this would increase again to 27 factories, supporting some 3,166 workers.Shortly after the first Limoges factory was established, Louis XVI bought it.For a time, production was still limited due to restrictions on the production of porcelain products.By the end of the process, like snowflakes, no two products will turn out the same.
So when a collector speaks of having a one-of-a-kind item, this will be the truth.It had to scramble to pick up export business to other countries, which eventually helped a little.
