About us

Since 1985, The Cottage Shop has enjoyed traveling the world to find and make wonderful art objects and home decor items. We have visited the unusual and fascinating corners of the world to bring you the unique and unusual from the side roads' artists we have discovered in our trips. Our specialty has always been the exquisite French hand painted Limoges porcelain boxes that we have created with our master museum commissioned artists from the city of Limoges France and the De Carlini Mouthblown Italian Glass Ornaments which have been decorating Christmas trees of numerous American families for the last 50 years.

With our first catalog, in 1985 up to the present we have always treasured the magic of the beauty you will take home with a Limoges box as a Limoges gift or as a Limoges box for your collection. In the recent years, we have directed our dedication to the creation of new designs molds and worked very close only with the best Limoges artists to achieve Limited Editions of French Limoges boxes with magnificent decor and attention to detail.

Every year, we also create new De Carlini Mouthblown Italian Glass Christmas Tree Ornaments, exclusive to us with the magnificent decor and attention to the detail bringing back historical characters as well as everyday fashion.  Our Italian Glass Christmas Tree Ornaments have become a gift for all year round, a decoration for every corner of the home and different occasions in life from birth, graduation, wedding, birthdays and so many more. 

We are proud to be able to keep our tradition for excellence and quality reflected on every item as well as our high level of customer service. As most of you know, our catalogs do not become old as most of our items are commissioned and can be ordered again.

If you need help in French, Spanish, Italian or German our operators will be happy to assist you. We want you to specially thank you for your loyalty and assure you of our best continued attention.

With our best wishes for a nice visit to our sites and catalogs,

The Cottage Shop Family.
