A SHORT HISTORY OF LIMOGES PORCELAIN BOXES
In the mid 18th Century with the perfection of European porcelain making skills, society became intrigued by “The Box”
Some examples of the 18th and 19th Century pieces can be found in museums, but the more contemporary interpretations continue to be prized by collectors.
Chamart brings you the fines craftsmanship and skill in each piece. We assure that your purchase is entirely painted by hand using absolutely no stencils or decals. We are dedicated to preserving the Art of Limoges porcelain
In our store we have several different styles to choose from. We are tying to consolidate some of our inventory so we have made huge reductions in the prices.
Some links to some of the Limoges are below:
Plus many many more. Just browse our store for most items on sale.
Have you ever wanted to have a purse that no one else had? What about having a 1 of a Kind Purse.
Well these adorable purses are handmade, and are one of a kind. No 2 are alike. These are sometimes called Mexican Purses, Candy Wrapper Purses, Prison Art Purses…..the names go on and on.
However, these are made using wrapping paper, & recycled magazines. These are not flimsy purses. These are all hand-cut, then individually laminated. They are then hand woven together. From there they are hand stitched together, inside and out to make them even stronger. Zippers are sewn in, along with a zipper attachment.
And the price is even better. If you were to buy the designer brand of these types of purses, you could easily pay over $100.00. However, since I don’t employ anyone other than myself, I only sell these at a fraction of the cost.
Don’t get me wrong, they are very labor intensive, and take many, many hours to complete. But I find it fun and relaxing to create different styles of these purses
Currently I only have 3 purses for sale, but will be adding more.
1. Fashionista Large Cheetah Print Handbag
2. Fashionista Small Cheetah Print coin purse.
3. Pop Culture Small Coin Purse

Ready for a doll like no other….. Wait until you have seen MINA – Bride of Dracula
The ultimate seductress, Mina lures her victims with black gothic suit accented with bright red. The jacket features slashes in the sleeves, almost giving away her penchant for “tearing into things”.
Her red fitted corset, which hugs her ample figure, perfectly matches the trim on her short skirt. Her formal top hat almost hides her jet black hair, fiery red eyes and exposed fangs…but not quite. Her knee-high boots, fishnet stockings and ring are all that she needs to round out her ensemble and be ready to lure her next victim.
12″ tall, articulated vinyl doll
The Couture Fantasy Brides of Dracula are a collaboration between Ashton-Drake and Integrity Toys. These 12” articulated vinyl dolls are based on the classic Brides of Dracula story that features three seductive temptresses. Best viewed as a set, these ladies could tell you a thing or two about what Dracula was really like!
Mina, third doll in the collection, is the ultimate seductress. She lures her victims with a black gothic suit accented with bright red.
Doll measures 12″ tall.

Contessa is definitely a doll like no other.
The Contessa wears a deep merlot gown featuring a handkerchief bottom with a sheer black overlay and lace trim detailing. The gown is cut low in the front and corseted to show-off her seductive figure and pale white décolletage.
The Contessa’s hair consists of blonde curls piled high with loose tendrils hanging down each side of her face. The Contessa stares deep into your soul with her blazing yellow eyes. Long black lace gloves, jewelry and shoes round out her offering, but her most important accessory is her pair of exposed white glistening fangs. This is one lady that you will never see wearing a crucifix.

If you are a fan of vampires and Dracula, then do we have a series of dolls for you. Here is one of them….LUCY
LUCY – The Couture Fantasy Brides of Dracula are a collaboration between Ashton-Drake and Integrity Toys. These 12” articulated vinyl dolls are based on the classic Brides of Dracula story that features three seductive temptresses. Best viewed as a set, these ladies could tell you a thing or two about what Dracula was really like!
Lucy is the second doll in the collection. Her royal blue dress is the perfect combination of naughty and nice, with a fitted bodice trimmed with black lace that is echoed throughout the overlapping layers of the skirt and at the sleeves.
Lucy, the youngest of the brides, may deceive you with a sweet first impression. But beware, Lucy’s long flowing red hair is tied up gently with some of the flowers that she was buried with. Lucy’s royal blue dress is the perfect combination of naughty and nice, with a fitted bodice trimmed with black lace that is echoed throughout the overlapping layers of the skirt and at the sleeves.
One brief look into Lucy’s crimson eyes and you know that she is evil. And do we see some dried up blood in the creases of her lips? Short black boots, short lacy gloves, fishnet stockings and an antique black and white cameo complete her ensemble, the perfect fashion for feasting on human flesh.
