Welcome and Thank you so very much for Viewing my Shop where you are sure to find some ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL Hand Painted Antique Pieces. Please enjoy and feel free to ask any questions.

Old Beginnings Antiques ~ A beautiful shop for you to enjoy and purchase Gorgeous Antique Limoges, Belleek and Fine Hand Painted Porcelain from days gone by ~ It is such a pleasure to be a part of the Ruby Lane family and having the opportunity to meet and work with you on purchasing that very special piece to add to your collection. My husband and I have been collecting and selling Fine Hand Painted Porcelain for over the past 17 years. We have a true love and passion for finding gorgeous Limoges and other fine hand painted porcelain. I truly enjoy being able to share each lovely piece with you that you may now treasure in your home for years to come.

We hope you will enjoy viewing all our "pretties"! We have developed a very solid reputation and have developed a wonderful customer following. I have met some wonderful and dear customers that have truly touched my heart! I am proud to have my home and many pieces that we have owned and later sold featured in the three series of books Living with Limoges, by the author Debby Dubay. We strive to offer exceptional antique porcelain in excellent condition. Please be sure to send us an email if you ever have any questions about a piece we have in our shop. You may also contact me directly on my cell number (209) 777-0793. Please leave a voice message if I am not available, and I will be happy to return your phone call just as soon as possible. Also, please don't hesitate to email us if you wish to make us an offer ~ We are always willing to work with you. We certainly are happy to offer a layaway plan to our customers on all items, allowing you a flexible monthly layaway plan up to twelve months to pay for your item (especially helpful to you for high end pieces). We take pride in having each item professionally packaged in order to insure that your "pretties" will arrive to their new home safely. Thank you for taking the time to view our shop ~ we sincerely appreciate your business.

We are always searching for and buying fine hand painted porcelain. Please feel free to contact us if you have a piece that you are interested in selling.
