Delicate floral garlands and shimmering gilt accents distinguish this exceptional, 143-piece Limoges porcelain dinner service. Crafted by Gerard, Dufraisseix & Abbot, one of the most respected makers of Limoges porcelain, this beautiful service exhibits the high caliber of artistry achieved by this world-renowned company. From the intricate hand-painted motif to the elegant scalloped edges, these pieces are truly stunning. Limoges porcelain is among the most collected in the world. 

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 into 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.
