Penguin Limoges Boxes
Penguins are unique birds that swim rather than fly.¬† Living mostly in cold seas in the far south of the world, penguins spend most of their lives in water and flock together in enormous groups.¬†¬†www.LimogesBoxCollector.com has beautiful penguin Limoges boxes that are a wonderful treat for penguin lovers.
This¬†Limoges box is the king penguin¬†, easy to recognize by the bright yellow and orange plumage on the head and neck
There are seventeen different types of penguins, but¬†all of them have wing arms that are like dolphin flippers, which are excellent for swimming.¬† Like all birds, peguins have feathers that keep them warm, and penguin bodies produce oil that is spread about their feathers to make them water proof.¬†¬†¬†These Limoges boxes show¬†penguins standing completely upright on their two feet as they shuffle about on land.¬† These remarkable creatures can walk, slide and swim, and leap as they enjoy life in and out of the water.
Penguin Limoges boxes are adorned with golden fish clasps,¬†a tasty penguin snack
Penguin parents spend many months working hard to care for their chicks.¬† When they are born, babies have fluffy feathers that are¬†warm but not yet waterproof, so they stay out of the water until they are eight or nine months.¬† Until their baby feathers have molten, they rely on and bond with their mother.¬† Precious penguin Limoges boxes like the one above are a precious display of that bonding period.
Penguins are amazing animals, and if you are a penguin lover, these Limoges boxes are wonderful display items to treasure and admire.
