Limoges Boxes Un-Corked

For a few years now I have collected wine corks.  There are so many fabulous crafts you can fancy from these frequently thrown away items.  Glue them together to make a hot pad or a cork board, bend wires and poke them inside to create cute little dolls, or link them in a square for a great picnic place mat.  A little creativity goes a long way with this craft-friendly material, not to mention you can usually get a free bottle of wine with each purchase.  :)

Inventive cork usage dates as far back 3000 BC, when this material was already being used in fishing tackle, floats, stoppers for casks, women's footwear and roofing materials.  These beautiful Limoges Box corks pay homage to that air of antiquity, gorgeously painted and clasped in gold metal, making you marvel at the dynamism of these stoppers.

Wine cork Limoges boxes are a perfect keepsake for wine lovers.  It is nice to have this piece as a preservative tribute to the glory of cork, as in recent years many producers are turning to rubber wine stoppers. These French porcelalin wine corks summon the respect and admiration that the Greeks and  Romans afforded this material as a noble and adaptable material.

It is always a satisfying moment to uncork that bottle and pour a relaxing glass of your favorite glorified grape juice.   As you sip, visit and feast your eyes on some lovely wine-geared porcelain treasures.

Fair-ly Nostalgic Limoges Boxes

Fairs are great venues for kids and adults alike to enjoy fun and games!  Food, candy, live shows, entertainers, rides ... show much stimulation for all the senses jam-packed into one place.  Typically, counties have fairs every spring or summer, something that people look forward to so they can spend the whole day taking in the sights and smells and just enjoying all the activities. 

There are many different forms of machinery brought in for these events -- colorful equipment that are enticing and exciting to the eyes. Perhaps the most memorable of these rides is the carousel. With music and lights and colorful animals to ride, these rides are are joy for all ages.   
These rides are abundant in France, and the name itself of French origin, making it perfectly fitting that these lovely Limoges boxes are made of quality French Limoges porcelain

This Carousel Limoges box is a nostalgic delight, with bright colors, and featuring three beautifully painted horses.  It makes you remember the music that fills the air at a fair and creates a fun-filled setting to think of you or your loved ones as first-time riders sitting tall in the saddle.  Smiles abound as a carousel spins, spreading laughter to all aboard, and this Limoges box is a great way to evoke those smiles again.
