Wonderful book about antique Limoges porcelain. I purchased on-line and then drove to Andover, MA to meet author Debby DuBay in her shop. The book, Ms. DuBay and her shop are full of information and fabulous pieces of Limoges porcelain. I purchased all of her books for the complete marks section, wonderful colored photographs of over 1,000 pieces of Limoges porcelain and for the historical information.

I just met Ms DuBay at the 2006 Educational Symposium for the Antiques & Collectibles National Association where she was the opening guest speaker. WOW! She was inspirational, educational, motivational while providing invaluable information. And that was just the beginning. She taught a Limoges class and again WOW! I'm now in love with Limoges and Debby DuBay. I purchased all three of her books and I love this book: Collecting Hand Painted Limoges Porcelain because I love the hand painted pieces with roses. This book is truly inspirational and beautiful. I also started collecting Potter because of her most recent book Beatrix Potter Collectibles. She has a unique writing style that I think is fantastic!

I just met Debby DuBay at the National 2006 Educational Symposium of the ACDA in SC where she was the opening guest speaker and wow Ms. DuBay is one of the best motivational speakers I have ever heard! Educational, informational, professional, and motivational then came her talk on Limoges porcelain which was absolutely excellent. I purchased her books and I love them. Collecting Hand Painted Limoges Porcelain is beautiful but don¿t judge a book by the cover it is full of worthwhile information for the collector and the decorator. Mary Frank Gaston states it all when she recommends Antique Limoges at Home.

This book has it all - written by Dubay, a forward by the editor of Victorian Homes Magazine and an introduction by Mary Frank Gaston -- that says it all. A fantastic book for the Limoges lover, porcelain collector and Victorian collector.

Wonderful book, with fabulous photographs, complete backstamps and marks section. I love DuBay's third book - Collecting Hand Painted Limgoes Porcelain - but I still love Living With Limoges and Antique Limoges at Home.

I am a china painter and I purchased D.DuBay's book for my students. What a great book! Histoically accurate - DuBay describes the process of china painting and the women who contributed to the art. Highly recommend Debby DuBay's trilogy on collecting Limoges: Antique Limoges at Home, Living With Limoges and Collecting Hand Painted Limoges Porcelain.

Collecting Hand Painted Limoges by DuBay is another fantastic book by Debby DuBay. Collecting Hand Painted Limoges Porcelain Boxes to Vases covers new and interesting information on imported blank Limoges porcelain that was then hand painted by the female American artist of the 19th and 20th centuries. Wonderful and I highly recommend it - if you can find it in any book shop! What a shame that this book is so hard to find. I ordered it from www.collectinglimoges.com and it was sent to me next day mail with the authors signature! I was delighted! I love DuBay's trilogy: Living With Limoges, Antique Limoges At Home and Collecting Hand Painted Limoges Porcelain and they are a must for the lover of this fantastic art form - Limoges.

Excellent reference book for porcelain collectors who are interested in the American cottage industry of the late 19th and into the 20th century of painting on porcelain. These American artists are indigenous to the US and have provided a beautiful art form to collectors. AND it is really wonderful if they combined their talent and Limoges. This book helped me identify my pieces of antique Limoges. Highly recommend Debby DuBay's book Collecting Hand Painted Limoges Porcelain Foreword by the editor of Romantic Homes and introduction by Mary Frank Gaston.

Dubay's books are outstanding. Personally I love her second book; Antique Limoges at Home, but Collecting Hand Painted Limoges is a follow up and the only book on the market that explains the process, lists American artists and their contributions and has a complete backstamp and marks section. This book is a must for your reference library.

Collecting Hand Painted Limoges Porcelain by Debby DuBay, Foreword by Erika Kotite, ed, Victorian Homes and Introduction by Mary Frank Gaston has some of the most beautiful photography of some of the most unusual pieces of antique Limoges I've ever seen. So many books on Limoges but this author has provided the collector with a unique aspect of collecting - collecting hand painted pieces of Limoges and introducing us to the women who contributed to this art form during the centuries. I was intrigued from start to finish. Along with new info, the author includes complete descriptions which include under and overglaze factory marks, values and artist info. This book has been recommended by North Shore Living and Romantic Homes and me.

My grandmother painted on Limoges porcelain and I'm a china painter so I love the historical aspect of this book. The author explains in detail the process of hand painting on china but more thrilling is this book is the first that lists china painters through the centuries. Also, female china painters and their contributions to the painting on porcelain, specifically Limoges. Hundreds of colored photographs of beautiful pieces of Limoges along with a wonderful marks section with hundreds of marks.

I had the opportunity to be at this books very first release party in Dallas Texas and the author is excellent; impressive, inspirational, educated, motivational, entertaining speaker and lecturer! I purchased all three of the authors books: Living With Limoges, Antique Limoges at Home and Collecting Hand Painted Limoges Porcelain, Boxes to Vases and I love and recommend them all!

WOW! The author's third book and I didn't think she could out do her first Living With Limoges, and then the fabulous Antique Limoges at Home but she did. Mary Frank Gaston indorses her books and in Collecting Hand painted Limoges Erika Kotite, editor or Victorian Homes did the forward and Gaston the introduction. Recommended by the Globe, Antique Journal, The Antique Trader, etc. need I say anything else. Debby DuBay's books are great and Collecting Hand Painted Limoges Porcelain: Boxes to Vases is the best book available on Limoges.

I received an advance copy due to the fact that Ms DuBay will be at the Forestwood Antique Shop, Dallas, TX on 1 and 7 Feb 2004 and I can not wait to have her autograph this outstanding book in her trilogy on antique Limoges porcelain. This author has helped collectors developed an new interest in this lovely art form. Her books are interesting, inspiring, informative and entertaining. I love DuBay's third book as much as I love her first: LIVING WITH LIMOGES and her second: ANTIQUE LIMOGES AT HOME. The photographs are wonderful.

I am a fan of Debby DuBay's and a contributor to her third book in her series on collecting Limoges: Collecting Hand Painted Limoges Porcelain: Boxes to Vases, foreword by Erika Kotite, Editor of Victorian Homes Magazine and Introduction by Mary Frank Gaston. I received an advanced copy and what a fabulous contribution to the subject of hand painted Limoges. The author did indepth research on women contributors during the 19th through 21st century to the world of china painting. What a fabulous tribute to the American female china painter! In addition, in her usual style, DuBay takes professional photos of Limoges collections in the homes of individual collectors, has over 1000 colored photographs of individual pieces: boxes to vases, with complete descriptions, mark section and 2004 VALUE GUIDE! Fabulous book and I'm honored to have been selected to be one of the collectors featured in COLLECTING HAND PAINTED LIMOGES PORCELAIN: Boxes to Vases.
