Welcome to The Cottage Shop!
Limoges Boxes have always been a treasured tradition at the Cottage Shop. Since 1985, when we mailed our the first printed catalogue, we already had one of the best Limoges Boxes Collections you could find in those days. The Limoges tabatieres were in style and the traditional roses or floral designs were the way the simple Limoges boxes' shapes were decorated by our talented master artists in the city of Limoges, France.

Limoges Boxes made a total fashion transition during the late 80s and it became so trendy to have a cabinet or shadow box in many places of your home housing the most unusual Limoges hand painted porcelain boxes. From Limoges Traditional Boxes with roses, to Limoges Fruits and Vegetables boxes, each Limoges collection was started to have its special accent. For the Limoges boxes gift givers, we always had a big variety of Limoges Heart Boxes and Limoges Gift Boxes. Many of you remember the first time you bought or received as a gift a Limoges Box, a Limoges Happy Birthday Cake Box, a Limoges Wedding Box or a little later a Limoges Baby Box.
Years went by and the sophistication and creativity of the Limoges porcelain boxes molds had no limits. From Limoges Animal Boxes to Limoges Monuments and Limoges Boxes from around the world, almost anything that could be recreated was done into a Limoges handpainted porcelain box. All these new ideas in the Limoges creative revolution were made for the USA market.
Limoges Chamart Boxes have represented the artistry and creativity of the best Limoges box from the 1970s on. Other Limoges brands as Limoges Artoria Boxes, Limoges Chanille Boxes and Limoges Rochard Boxes came after that.As usual, we are pleased to have a great selecion of them on our web sites and catalogues.
In most recent years, and after having visited the historical archives of the city of Limoges, the Sevres and Versailles museums, a historical and artistic collection was created in France. The Cottage Shop is honored to present the exclusive Limoges Marquise de Pompadour Boxes Collection for the refined collector. This collection was made possible with the help and guidance of the Great Grand Daughter of the Countess D' Aubervilliers. Only the best commissioned artists are chosen to decorate each one of the Limoges Marquise de Pompadour Boxes. It is a great honor in France today to be creating a new mold or theme for this super Limoges Box Collection. We invite you to take a look at our Limoges Versailles Palace, le Chateau de Versailles Limoges Box, created with the help of historical architects and Parisian historical sculptors from the Louvre museum. After 8 months of work, the first Limoges mold of the Palace was born, perfectly scaled down with a level of detail that came from antique drawings and maps before the French Revolution until our days.
