Limoges Boxes Representing the Great French Castle Chateau de Chenonceau

I have visited many chateaux and castles throughout France.  Among the most impressive is the dream-like Chateau de Chenonceau.  Chenonceau is located in the Loire Valley, an area with a great concentration of great manor houses and large castles such as the great Chambord castle.  The Loire Valley is located about 230 miles south of Paris – an easy distance for any traveler with a love of French architecture.

Built overlooking the River Cher, Chenonceau is the Loire castle where women have most left an impression. Catherine Briçonnet, Diane de Poitiers and Catherine de Medicis each brought a personal touch to this amazing castle.  Apart from its enchanting formal gardens, the castle contains an impressive art collection, composed of period furniture and famous paintings (including Van Loo’s “Three Graces”) in a bridge-gallery straddling the Cher.

A great way to memorialize a visit to this amazing castle or just to be reminded of the beauty of French chateaux in general, are these two fantastic Limoges boxes by Beauchamp Limoges.  One is an outstanding Limoges box made in the shape of the Chenonceau castle with the river running under it.  It is magnificently hand-painted with great detailing throughout.  Inside is a hand-painted image of ladies and a gentleman on a leisurely walk by the river, looking at the swans that are found at the castle.  The second is an exquisite Limoges box in the shape of a Postcard from Chenonceau.
