It covers the history of Limoges porcelain, various Limoges blanks and their intended uses, the difference between antique French Limoges and American Limoges, and how to recognize reproductions.

A special section is also devoted to stunning examples of Limoges hand painted buttons, brooches, and stickpins. Current values, information on researching Limoges, a list of artists and their signatures, and a comprehensive marks section are all provided.
