#8 LIMOGES LADY BROOCHES
Limoges Lady Brooches
Today I am sharing my Limoges Lady Brooches. I only have a few of these in my collection but I so love them. I do not know if any of my brooches are marked or not because I refuse to remove their antique pin backs. Although many of the blanks for these were never stamped anyway. However, like my buttons they are hard paste kaolin porcelain. I just think they are so lovely.
First I have a beautiful lady decorated with
22K gold and turquoise.
Next I have a Beautiful Lady with a simply 22K gold edge.
My next one was very difficult to photograph but you can see it well enough to get an idea of what it looks like.
And I have saved the BEST for last. This is my absolute favorite Lady Brooch of all. There was a lot of love that went into this beautiful piece. I consider it a tiny little work of art. I actually do wear this brooch from time to time. Although I worry when I do and I constantly check to make sure it is still there.
Here are my lovely lady brooches with more brooches
from my collection.
Have a beautiful day,
