Chamart's founder, Charles Martine, began importing fine French porcelain to the United States in the early 1950's, and by 1965 had expanded the company's line to introduce the first collection of wonderful French Limoges boxes.

As collectors developed a passion for these charming little treasures, the company continued to expand its Limoges box line over the years, now numbering over 2,500 different styles. The vast majority of these are exclusive to Chamart.

Leny Davidson, Charles Martine's niece, is Chamart's president. Mrs. Davidson travels to Limoges regularly and works closely with the various ateliers and artists who produce each Chamart box.

   
 

Mrs. Davidson is uncompromising in maintaining Chamart's high standards for extraordinary craftsmanship and hand painting. No decals, transfers or stencils are ever used. Shortcuts of any kind are simply unthinkable at Chamart.. Davidson is uncr extraordinary craftsmanship and hand painting. No decals, transfers or stencils are ever used.

It is highly unusual for more than 850 to be made of any particular box, making each Chamart box quite collectible. The Atelier Chamart collection of exquisite limited edition floral relief boxes, a Chamart specialty, are breathtakingly stunning and are limited to no more than 300.

In photographing them, we have been struck by how consistently photogenic Chamart's boxes are. This is a tribute to their graceful contours, stunning application of color, and truly exquisite hand painting and detailing. Many have delightful little porcelain surprises inside.
