About Manufacture Nationale de Sèvres

The Sevres Porcelain Manufactory (Manufacture Nationale de Sèvres) is one of the leading porcelain manufacturers in the world. It is located in the town of Sèvres near Paris in France. The Manufacture was successively, Royal, Imperial then National. Still in activity, its production is today oriented towards the creation of contemporary works of art while continuing the edition of ancient models in the greatest tradition of French luxury. It is impossible to think about luxury French ceramics without the Sevres Porcelain Manufactory coming immediately to mind. Always in the top of classic or contemporary French Design, Sevres artists and craftmens have maintained a standard of excellence and elegance for more than 250 years. For the French, the Sevres Porcelain Manufactory is considered as part of their inheritance as national treasure. Didier Luttenbacher - CNES Expert
