Sit at the table in the manner of kings and princes with our historic dinnerware – identical replicas of original pieces from the 18th and 19th centuries. The diversity of table settings presented throughout this catalog illustrates a history of fashions, influences, and styles over more than a century. Each piece, each service, each historic cup is an invitation to rediscover, through porcelain, a few chapters of two great histories: art and the table.

It belongs to the Bernardaud group since 1986 and produces all its historical models in its Limoges workshops according to the strictest quality standards.

Here again, a natural design created by Etienne Evans, the unsurpassed master painter of insects and birds, who worked in the Sèvres workshops for over fifty years. The almost scientific execution of the tufted herons makes no allusions: an aesthetic sentiment prevails in such an idealistic relationship with nature, similar to the work of Jean-Jacques Rousseau.
