Sevres porcelain sevres porcelain factory

DEFINITION

Named for a French word for paste, both hard and soft, Sevres Porcelain was made from 1756, first at Vincennes and then at the royal factory of Sevres near Versailles. With the decline of Meissen Porcelain after 1756, it became the leading porcelain factory in Europe. The patronage of Madame de Pompadour played a major role in its prestige, and because of her the factory was moved to Sevres. Source: Encyclopedia Britannica eb.com
