Porcelain crafting

The Manufacture de Sèvres is a leading European porcelain manufacturer. Since its creation in 1740, the factory has been closely linked to the French political order. It was established with the support of Louis XV in order to compete with the porcelain manufactures in Chantilly and Meissen. The company then came under imperial and subsequently national management. Today, the manufacture continues to produce works in accordance with its origins, that is, ceramic works using artisanal techniques. It reproduces iconic pieces using its rich collection of moulds, as well as contemporary pieces. The ceramics are produced both for state needs and for commercial purposes.
