Today we would like to take you through some remarkable examples of antique porcelain, especially some pieces of antique French Sevres porcelain that we offer for sale.
Sevres Porcelain traces its roots in France to early craftsmen who had small manufacturing operations in such places as Lille, Rouen. St. Cloud, and most notably Chantilly. It is from Chantilly that a cadre of workers migrated to the Chateau de Vincennes near Paris to form a larger porcelain manufactory in 1738.
