Limoges New York City Manhattan Travel Boxes
New York City is comprised of 5 boroughs and at its core is Manhattan. Densely populated, Manhattan is among the world’s major commercial, financial and cultural centers. The iconic skyscrapers bring approximately 65 million tourists a year and a large number of workers commute into the city via a variety of transportation, doubling the islands daily population. The Cottage Shop has commissioned artists to create the Limoges New York Landmarks Box and the Limoges Manhattan Skyline Box. These Limoges boxes are great representations of the popular landmarks and skyscrapers of NYC.

The Statue of Liberty National Monument is located on the 12-acre Liberty Island and receives thousands of visitors daily. The statue was a gift from France to commemorate the friendship between the U.S. and France. Construction began in 1875 and was completed in 1885 in France. The completed statue was 151 feet tall and weighed 225 tons and had to be disassembled and shipped to NYC. Richard Morris Hunt designed and built a pedestal on Bedloe’s Island. The Statue mounted on its pedestal stands 305 feet tall. Lady Liberty has been a symbol of American freedom, opportunity and a beacon for those seeking refuge. To honor Lady Liberty, our artists have created the Limoges Green Statue of Liberty Box, Limoges Statue of Liberty Box and the Limoges New York Liberty Lady Champagne in Case Box.
