Musee National Adrien Doubouche, Limoges.
The national porcelain museum.
The museum was created in 1845, thanks to patron Adrien Dubouche.
Limoges porcelain is made from the local white clay called Kaolin.
Traditional porcelain is classified if you can hold the piece up to the light and it can be seen through.
Interesting way to show the colours of the pigments used to decorate.
The museum consisted of 3 floors of ceramics.
As each floor progressed it was noticed that the dishes became fancier.
An elegant piece.
This was huge, another favourite piece.
The collections date from Antiquity to the XVIIIth century modern day.
Not a traditional dish, I loved this piece.
