From left to right: Creating the design and sculpting the box. After the piece has been poured and it has set it is removed from the mold and Viola! The Box! A firing test at 1400 degrees Centigrade. The painting of the box makes the porcelain come alive. Then "Sertissage", the joining of metal and porcelain. Each hinge is custom fitted and molded to the individual box.

We've talked about Parry Vieille from time to time but it bears repeating. They are one of the finest makers of Limoges boxes. Their designs are all original; they lead and others follow. Unlike others, they make their boxes from start to finish. Every piece is designed, fabricated, decorated and mounted in their own factory.
