Limoges Boxes

Hi everyone, I am new to the forum--it's fabulous. Have been in CH for 8 months now and I live in Zug--does anyone have a tip for where i might find a store in central Switzerland that sells Limoges Boxes? I buy one for my daughter for her birthday every year.
Thanks for your assistance.

Re: Limoges Boxes

Youre probably better off buying them online. My Aunt came to visit me and she couldnt find a large variety to choose from. Some of the jewlery stores in Zuerich on Bahnhoffstrasse have some things though. But a big store with nothing but? Thats hard to find.

Welcome to the forum and to Zug, why dont you start a thread here and tell us a bit about yourself and your family.

I have no idea where to get Limoges Boxes from but i can tell you that my mum had these dotted all around the house when i was a kid and i used to catch spiders in them.

I think she was greatful when i moved out at 18!!

Re: Limoges Boxes

I was curious, so I looked up Limoges on a map - not terribly far from geneva.

Have you thought to take a train ride to Limoges and check them out yourself? Or if your daughter's around, take her? Might be cool to see them make them. Looks like you can get from Lyon to Limoges pretty easily (and Geneva to Lyon, of course).

or look here....
