The Sèvres porcelain manufactory


The Manufacture de Vincennes opened in 1740 and enjoyed great success thanks to the quality of its productions and the support of the Court. The manufactory moved in 1756 to Sèvres and initiated its history of excellence in soft-paste porcelain and hard-paste porcelain from 1768.

The Manufacture de Sèvres has attracted renowned artists such as François Boucher, Albert Carrier-Belleuse, Albert Dammouse, Alexandre-Evariste Fragonard, Auguste Rodin and many other artists of all periods. It has become an essential artistic scene as demonstrate the many World Fairs where the manufactory participated.

Its success comes from its ability to adapt to trends while perpetuating a technical and artisanal savoir-faire still practiced today.
