Those hand painted boxes are made of Limoges Porcelain ; this production started on about 1750 when "kaolin" was discovered in Limoges. The way they are produced currently is very similar to the one of this period, that is to say that the white porcelain box, then its setting and its painting are hand made. The white porcelain is fired at 1 400C. The decorations are made with brushes and colors
for porcelain and are fired at about 850C.
The firing of the "decor" on porcelain can be multiple if there are many different colors.

Many traditional or symbolic themes have been evoked in the past :
flowers, portraits, love... Other modern themes have been added , i.e. Christmas,
Halloween, the everyday life, etc.
