Manufacture de Sèvres Porcelain

Favoured and eventually financed by King Louis XV, under the influence of Madame de Pompadour, the Manufacture de Vincennes, renamed Manufacture de Sèvres from 1756 onwards, has been for centuries a centre of heritage and creation and a symbol of French royal power. Today, together with the National Ceramics Museum, it is part of Sèvres Manufacture et Musée Nationaux, a public institution under the aegis of the French Ministry of Culture.

The Sèvres porcelain manufacturer is a one-of-a-kind wellspring for the creation of new forms and colours, where excellence and expertise are faithfully passed on from one generation to the next. From form design to firing to decoration, the production of porcelain works is carried out within twenty-five on-site workshops gathering together twenty-six different crafts perfected by Sèvres’ exceptional artisans. Talented artists, designers and architects invited to Sèvres are seduced by the quality and subtlety of its porcelain, as well as its infinite palette of over 1000 colours, including the iconic combination of gold and Sèvres blue.
