Description

This richly detailed floral pattern was inspired by a beautiful cup and saucer (1780) in The Met collection. The originals were made at the Sèvres Manufactory (1740–today) outside Paris, Europe's most renowned porcelain manufacturer during the last half of the 18th century. The pieces bear the mark of Nicquet, a flower painter and gilder employed at Sèvres from about 1764–92.

King Louis XV became the sole owner of the Sèvres Manufactory in 1759, naming it the Royal Porcelain Manufactory. This innovative and successful concern produced costly luxury porcelain for the elite, which the king and members of his circle, including Madame de Pompadour, collected with enthusiasm.

Our elegant set was handcrafted and decorated in France expressly for The Met Store by Bernardaud, a family-owned business since 1863.
