During the Victorian era, several Limoges porcelain factories began to pop up in Baignol, Alluaud, and Tharaud. In 1842, American David Haviland built a factory in Limoges that became the world-famous Haviland china brand. Though made in France, Haviland china was produced primarily for the North American market. In 1880, Haviland was commissioned by the White House, which only boosted its international recognition. An especially popular item produced in the Limoges china factories were bonbonniéres.
These small boxes were used by women to keep sweets that disguised bad breath. Both the bonbonniéres and novelty items are highly collected today. If you have any questions, please let us know. Please check out our other items in our store; we are always adding new exquisite products.
