Object History

The Sèvres Porcelain manufactory

The Sèvres Porcelain manufactory was founded to the east of Paris in the disused royal château of Vincennes, late in 1739-40.

It was not until 1756 that it moved to the village of Sèvres, west of Paris, strategically placed en route to King Louis XV’s palace of Versailles. Here it was also adjacent to Louis’s mistress Madame de Pompadour’s own château at Bellevue.

Important designers and influential artistic directors were always at the forefront of Sèvres’s innovation. Famous artists who designed for Sèvres have included Louis-Simon Boizot, Théophile Fragonard, Hector Guimard, Serge Poliakoff , Auguste Rodin and Louise Bourgeois. One of the most influential artists was Albert Ernest Carrier-Belleuse who became artistic director in 1876 and was famed for his designs.
