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. 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. Please check out our other items in our store; we are always adding new exquisite products.
