The manufacture nationale de Sèvres is a Frit porcelain porcelain tendre
factory at Sèvres, France. Formerly a royal, then an imperial factory,
the facility is now run by the Ministry of Culture. The Sèvres company
was founded in 1738. In 1740, the Vincennes manufactory was created,
with the support of Louis XV and Madame de Pompadour. In 1756, the
factory moved to Sèvres, near Madame de Pompadour's Bellevue Palace.
This new building, 130 meters longer, was built between 1753 to 1756
with Lindet as architect. It became a royal factory in 1759. Jean-Claude
Chambellan Duplessis served as artistic director of the Vincennes
porcelain manufactory and its successor at Sèvres from 1748 to his death
in 1774. Louis-Simon Boizot was director between 1774 and 1800;
Alexandre Brogniart director between 1800 to 1847; and Henri Victor
Regnault director beginning in 1854.
