Art History

The Svres porcelain factory, established in 1740 in the chteau of Vincennes just outside Paris, quickly became the preeminent producer of porcelain in Europe. Supported in its early years by the patronage of Louis XV, the factory became known as the manufacture du roi in 1753 and was purchased by the king in 1759. Catering in large part to the tastes of the Court, the factory strove for constant innovation and originality throughout the eighteenth century, frequently employing the leading artists and designers of the day to provide models and inspiration for the factorys artisans.
