LIVING WITH LIMOGES is more than a collector's book with fabulous identification and price guide. As the name implies "Living With Limoges" is the first book of its kind showing a collector how to decorate with various pieces of antique decorative Limoges porcelain. The author begins with the history of Limoges, the process, distinction between handpainted and transferware and then gets into a unique concept: LIVING WITH various and unique pieces of LIMOGES. Going room by room, fabulous professional photographs show how to decorate the entry, living, dining, bed, kitchen and bath rooms with pieces of Limoges from plaques, paintings on porcelain to jardinieres, vases and punch bowls! The first book to have an entire section on WEARING YOUR LIMOGES, TEA TIME, and Wedding Band Porcelain. The marks section is alphabetical, easy to read and identify and the price ranges after each item description are very helpful. This book should be required reading for the collector! A beautiful tea table book that is not only informative but artist! LIVING WITH LIMOGES has it all.
