The biscuit is finely carved with many details, it is in perfect condition. Measures: Height 45.5 cm Sèvres Porcelain history starts in 1738 when the Marquis Orry de Fulvy, brother of the Minister of Finance, obtained from the French king Louis XV a licence to manufacture porcelain in the Saxon manner. At that time the brothers Dubois, who were arcanists that fled from Chantilly, had already experimented to produce porcelain at the Chateau de Vincennes. Together with Gravant, they succeeded in producing a type of soft paste frit-porcelain around 1745. The Sèvres Porcelain Factory was originally founded in 1738 at Chateau de Vincennes, France by local craftsmen from a nearby porcelain factory at Chantilly. From the beginning, Sèvres created finely detailed gilded and hand painted decorative arts for the wealthy and privileged. About 1798 Sèvres Porcelain was declared the property of the French government. Sèvres Porcelain then began to shed its dependence on the French Royal family by expanding to produce highly crafted pieces for the wealthy and simple yet high quality pieces for a broader section of society. The Wallace Collection holds the finest museum collection of Sèvres Porcelain in the world.
