This is another example of a modern fantasy wall pocket with a misleading 'Limoges' back stamp. Decorated with dainty flowers on a yellow band and trimmed in gold this item may fool some buyers who are not yet aware the fleur de lis mark above the words 'Limoges China' has nothing at all to do with Limoges, France. The item was made in China, not France.
This is just one of several different spurious Limoges marks out there that buyers should know about and avoid if they want to buy only authentic Limoges porcelain.
Certain characteristics can help to identify falsely marked 'Limoges' items as counterfeits. Note the bright gold trim, for instance. This piece has no patina and looks new because it is new. Search this shop for other items bearing spurious Limoges marks for additional features that help separate real from fake porcelain articles.
