LimogesBoxCollector.com is proud to announce the arrival of a newly-acquired rare and discontinued Limoges Coca Cola Collection. The highly collectible Coca Cola Limoges boxes are a part of a large collection of newly-arrived rare and retired French porcelain Limoges boxes.
Coca Cola advertising has chronicled our times and events for more than a century. Since its inception in 1886 to today, Coca-Cola has become a staple of American and worldwide culture. Coca-Cola pioneered the art of brand recognition with an almost endless variety of promotional materials. Favorite Coca Cola images have appeared on thousands of products over the years such as tin trays, clocks, calendars and coolers. Products with the Coca Cola logo have become favorite antiques and collectibles for nostalgia collectors.
The Coca Cola Limoges Box Collection includes the favorite classic Coca Cola bottle, Coca Cola 6-Pack, Cooler, Bottle Cap and the famous Coca Cola Glass. Also included in the Limoges Box collection is a Coca Cola poster, offering the refreshing beverage at fountains or bottles for a mere 5¢!
Another outstanding piece in the collection is a Limoges Box with an image of the Coca Cola Calendar Cover featuring Hilda Clark. The beautiful actress and model became famous in 1895 as the first woman to be featured on a tin Coca Cola tray. Hilda Clark remained the advertising face of Coca Cola until she got married in 1903.
From the start, the Holiday season was a great advertising opportunity for Coca Cola and through the years, numerous images of Santa Claus were used to advertise the bubbly, refreshing beverage. Coca Cola’s cheerful Santa Claus is featured in the retired Limoges Box Collection, holding a bottle of Coca Cola and checking his little book for the list of Christmas present deliveries.

The history of Limoges Boxes goes back to the time of Louis XVI, when the king’s finance minister, by a Royal edict, appointed the city of Limoges to be the exclusive producer of Royal Porcelain for the Kingdom of France. It is said that the first patron of porcelain boxes was the Marquis of Pompadour who presented his Lady’s companions each with a gift of a Limoges box. Such presents were offered as long, narrow boxes to hold the ladies expensive needles, shapes to hold thimbles or embroidery scissors or round Limoges boxes to hold a ring, powder or snuff. Ladies and gentlemen of that era also used small Limoges boxes to exchange love notes!
Collecting Limoges boxes became the symbol of the highest distinction and fashion when Napoleon’s wife, Empress Josephine, showed great interest and began a collection of her own. Soon, Limoges boxes were sought after and collected by royalties all over Europe.
Authentic Limoges boxes are highly collectible as they are made only in the Limousine region in central France. These beautifully decorated miniature boxes are made of the highest quality white porcelain found only in that region. Every Limoges box is crafted and artfully hand-painted by French artisans with vibrant colors and glaze, fired numerous times for brilliance and luster, and are finished by hand with decorative hinges to create a true masterpiece for shoppers and collectors’ enjoyment.
