Quick Reference

Limoges has been the main area for porcelain production in France since the 18th century, when the ingredients for making hard-paste porcelain, kaolin and petuntse, were discovered nearby in 1768. Porcelain began to be made in the town, and for a short while plain white wares were supplied for decoration at the Sèvres factory. After the French Revolution a number of factories were established and Limoges remains the most important area for porcelain in France today.
