Although, if you are partial to collecting stamps, coins, and automobiles … LimogesCollector.com has you covered.

Functionality

Not all of the magic of a Limoges collectible has to be limited to its outer shell! Artisans carefully hand paint not only the breathtaking outside, but the insides as well. Further art awaits you when you open up your Limoges box. Often a box already includes removable trinket pieces that will supplement the design and add to the charm. And if you have a special jewelry or small keepsake you want to keep safe inside, this is a perfect little capsule. A Limoges box serves as great container to store objects that you value: your child’s first baby tooth, your daily multivitamin, a tiny picture of a loved one, or the engagement ring for popping the big question. Possibilities are endless within your Limoges!
