Translated by John Gilbert.
The manufacture of porcelain at Sevres has a long and eventful history: for over 250 years Sevres has been a centre of innovation and creativity in porcelain manufacture, and during its earliest days served the royal courts of France.
This beautiful book charts the history of porcelain manufacture at Sevres, and the development of the Museum itself. It is the most comprehensive guide to be produced of the Museum's collection, the only collection in the world to hold examples of all the different styles and methods of production of Sevres porcelain, and illustrates over 150 of the most important pieces in full colour.
