In today’s financial market, Collectors and art lovers who look for additional investment opportunities beyond gold and silver can now expand their portfolios with French porcelain Limoges boxes. Hand-painted French Limoges boxes have historically been purchased and collected as high-end decorative objects and gifts. These fine porcelain collectibles have now become the perfect candidate for investment art pieces.
LimogesBoxCollector.com announces the investment opportunity in French porcelain art with its extensive collection of high-quality brand name Limoges boxes. The collection of current and retired Limoges boxes provides collectors and investors numerous choices to add magnificent art pieces to their collections, as objects of beauty to be displayed as well as an investment which will increase in value.
Limoges boxes are an ideal investment choice as each piece is a unique and one-of-a-kind art piece. Every stage of the creation of a Limoges box is performed by hand by Limoges master artisans. From pouring the porcelain paste into molds, firing, glazing, hand-painting and finally, hinging, each Limoges box is made through a very lengthy and labor-intensive process to offer a miniature masterpiece for collectors and art enthusiasts to enjoy.
What makes Limoges boxes into great investments is the fact that every model is made in limited editions. Many styles become discontinued after a limited number are created. The value of Limoges boxes has enjoyed a steady incline over the past several years. Especially of interest are retired and out of production Limoges boxes which have seen a great increase in value depending on style.
An example of great escalation in value is the retired Walt Disney Limoges box collection by Artoria Limoges. These Limoges boxes have enjoyed an average increase of approximately ten times their original value in about 10 years.
