Limoges porcelain is known for its dazzling white, luminous hue and the intricacy of its hand-painted decorations. The first porcelain with the Limoges mark was produced in 1771. Limoges had all the essential natural ingredients needed to create world-class porcelain—kaolin, feldspar and quartz—but, just as importantly, the region had a vibrant history of craftsmanship that dated back nearly a millennium. In the 12th century, Limoges was the most famous European center of vitreous enamel production, known as Opus de Limogia or Labor Limogiae. Limoges also produced faience earthenware, or fine in-glazed pottery. The heritage of ceramics and decoration was deeply woven into the fabric of the city.
