Antique Limoges porcelain is considered the finest hard paste porcelain in the world because of three very specific characteristics. The first being the essential ingredients used in creating Limoges porcelain are all local natural ingredients, kaolin, feldspar & quartz. Then the intense firing process that forms the superb glaze that cannot be penetrated by the elements and gives Limoges porcelain that exquisite translucence.
Finally, an abundance of skilled artists and the French flair for aristic design set a standard that other Europeans and American porcelain producers struggle to emulate.
