Museum Four des Casseaux (Casseaux Oven)

The Museum of Casseaux, sheltering the Oven of Casseaux, is a Historic and technical site dedicated to the china of Limoges.

Listed on the supplementary inventory of Historic Monuments, the Casseaux oven was in operation up until 1960. This double coal-fired oven was built in the early 20th century and is one of 5 ovens still to be seen in the city of Limoges, but the only one which can be visited.

 

The Espace Porcelaine association runs the museum and hosts temporary exhibitions. It plans to develop the site into a technological museum, in particular through its display of antique machinery.

 

Very close, the Manufacture Royal Limoges offers in its factory store tableware and china jewelry.
