The Makers - PV

The letters PV stand for Parry Vieille, one of the finest makers of Limoges boxes. Their designs are all original; they lead and others follow. Unlike others, they make their boxes from start to finish. Every piece is designed, fabricated, decorated and mounted in their own factory located in Limoges, France. The partners have recently separated and are no longer in production.
The sweet teddy bear pictured here is representative of the atelier's attention to detail. Note the expression, the tiny stitches & how puffy the pillow looks.
