7 Reasons Why Limoges Boxes Are the Collectibles of Choice in 2019
Beauty, elegance, charm and masterful artistry are among the
many words that describe a
French Limoges box.
Collecting Limoges boxes has been a favorite pastime for the better part of the 20 th century as well as the 21st century. Unlike some other collectibles that are somewhat trendy and may fall out-of-fashion after a time, Limoges boxes continue strong in 2019 to see a great increase in their appeal among collectors and gift shoppers.
Why people Collect Limoges Boxes?
My friend, Jamie Anderson, began collecting Limoges boxes over 20 years ago after she received a beautiful Limoges birthday cake as a present. As she learned more about Limoges porcelain boxes, the artistry and how laboriously each one is crafted, she has been adding to her collection year after year.
Another good friend, Ellen Fleming, purchased her first Limoges box when on vacation with her family in France. The beauty of Limoges boxes truly captured her heart and she now has grown her collection to over 60 boxes. That first Limoges box continues to bring back the fond memories of the special trip she took to Paris with her family.
Collecting is a joyous act. Those who collect Limoges boxes are
rarely motivated by their monetary value but by emotions, love and the enjoyment
of their beauty. Collecting these
beautiful objects is not only based on how they enhance the beauty and elegance
of one’s home decor, but also help the collector relive special memories and
connect to times and experiences they cherish.
And, there is always a great deal of happiness that comes from adding a
new find to the collection as well as the excitement of the hunt.
Another benefit that comes from collecting Limoges boxes, is the fact that friends and relatives know what to get you for special occasions. As choosing the right gift for our loved ones is becoming more difficult, your friends and relatives will know a new Limoges box is what you will love to add to your collection. Isn’t that the nicest gift when your loved ones can say, “I saw this and thought of you.”
