Tea Sets from Limoges Porcelain



When we wake up ion the morning the first thing to do is to drink a cup of steaming coffee. Well, this is a modern habit, but in the past people used to drink tea instead of coffee. And there was a certain ritual of the tea, a tea ceremony that had to be respected and implied a lot of grace and respect. Some people still prefer drinking tea to coffee and even fewer use the graceful and delicate porcelain sets made especially for this purpose. However, there are still some good families, usually belonging to high society that still use these porcelain tea sets and admire and purchase the ones made by the famous Limoges porcelain manufacturers.

These amazing tea sets are real masterpieces because they are made of porcelain and then hand painted. The distinctive feature of these porcelains is the fact that they all have a band of gold or platinum that makes them precious and sparkling. After the porcelain models are burned into fire they are polished with an agate stone in order to obtain even more depth and richness for the gold applied. Each set is made of six tea cups and saucers, a tea pot, a sugar bowl and a cream jug. Each set can be ordered for a price between 700-1099 euro.
