  This rare and elegant Limoges jewel box displays the exquisite enamel artistry for which Limoges is celebrated. Bearing five panels of charming woodland scenes, this charming box also features floral accents of cast silvered bronze. Sought after for its striking translucency and durability, Limoges boxes attracted the notice of Georgian Englishmen who considered these lovely boxes as highly precious collectibles. This dramatic box, with its pristine maroon velvet interior, is an exceptional example of these beloved items.

Circa 1890

Limoges has been one of Europe's largest centers of "fire arts" - porcelain, enamel and glass - since the 12th century. In 1771, the same year that kaolin (the key ingredient in the making of porcelain) was discovered, Anne Robert Jacques Turgot, Limoges' financial officer, opened the Limoges Porcelain Manufactory to generate revenue in the region. This pivotal moment pushed the region of Limoges into the forefront of the ceramics industry, a position that was maintained throughout the 19th century.
