Limoges -- Limoges Berry Bowl
Perfect for some fruit...
Limoges is an area in the south of France known for its decorative pieces because of the richness of kaolin in the soilís clay. Take this Art Nouveau berry bowl for example. It was produced by a company named Coronet in the 1870's. These were typically given to brides at the turn of the century. Always check for an insignia on the bottom of the piece to ensure its authenticity.
