These Limoges pieces were purchased by my parents on various trips to France during mid-1970's thru early 1980's. Some were purchased as seconds others have developed into seconds as the result of multiple moves. Second quality pieces are so marked in the description. The advantage of 35+ year old Limoges is that the lead control standards were not so stringent at the time, leaving more lead in the glaze than is possible today. More lead in the glaze mean less chipping and popping. To purchase, ask questions, or make an offer contact me at karlapendleton@juno.com or click on the contact button below.

Limoges Box Bottom ONLY. Fits the 7-1/2" lid shown above. Should fit any lid with an inner lip of 6" or less. 2nd quality with some "pimpling" on the inside. The flaws do not show up well in the photo at right. However, I believe these flaws to be easily disguised by a decorative design. Marked Limoges France on the bottom.    $14.95                       FREE SHIPPING

Tray is 5-1/2" square, 7" handle to handle, marked Porcelaine Limoges Castel France Fabriquee et Decoree a Limoges.

As my teaching circuit comes to an end this season, I once again find myself with duplicates of some designs that I need to clear from my studio. This is a great opportunity to purchase completed pieces at deeply discounted prices. Also included with each purchase is a free Do-It-Yourself study giving step by step instructions. Studies range in value from $3.95 to $7.95 depending upon the number of color pages from 1 - 5, but they are free to you as my gift for helping me to clear out my studio. Any of these would make a great gift for your teacher, who might like to make a class project of a design YOU like but may not know where to start without some help from the study. Also great for groups/demos without an official teacher who want to attempt a design and you have the instructions!

Downsizing My Collection of Admired Artists
Steve and I are tired of house maintenance (actually I was tired of it before we started building) and plan to move back into a motorhome. While I look forward to getting back on the road, I'm also forced to downsize my "Collection of Admired Artists". This part is not so much fun! My mother, grandmother and I have collected quite a bit over the years and I must gradually determine what to part with. Unfortunately, my kids and grandkids only want the things I've painted. I thought I raised them better! Must do some reeducation. My loss is your gain if you are interested in owning any of these pieces please contact me quickly as many of these artists are in great demand and quite a few are no longer with us. To purchase please contact me at (970)799-1788 or email me at karlapendleton@juno.com. I MUST RECEIVE YOUR NAME, WITH FULL SHIPPING ADDRESS and PHONE NUMBER to reserve your place on a first come first serve basis. If this information is NOT contained in your message or email your purchase will NOT be held.
