Limoges porcelain is renowned for its delicacy, refined decorations and patterns, as well as its hardness, whiteness and translucence. Women and men are trained to develop skills necessary for the production of the ceramic tableware, including pattern sketching and making, model-making, trimming, adding buttons, spouts and handles, glazing, hand and ‘filet' painting, embossing inlay work and mounting. Once completed, each piece is individually checked to guarantee its perfection. Craftspeople in workshops and factories perpetuate skills whose sustainability relies on local training and transmission of knowledge among generations.
