Teacher's Guide - French Revolution - Limoges Style Tabatiere Details

This reusable guide covers 1769-1821 and such key people as King Louis XVI, and Napoleon Bonaparte. It is to be used in conjunction with the French Revolution Tabatiere (EDU 004). Towards the end of the 18th century, kaolin (white clay) was discovered around Limoges, France. Essential objects for daily use and decorative articles soon became available. One of the most popular of these objects was the Limoges box, or Tabatiere in French (also known as trinket boxes and miniature hinged boxes). The aristocracy used this box to hold their powdered tobacco products and other valuable items. These boxes were more popular than timepieces. A Tabatiere represented a lasting reflection of personal status and taste, and was the most important gift a man was likely to receive. During the French Revolution, soldiers often destroyed whatever they found in the home of the aristocrats and religious people. The original Tabatieres that survived carry a very high value.
