Sèvres

 

DESCRIPTION

Each rose is a unique piece dated and hand-crafted by the master-ceramicists of Sèvres.

The first roses were commissioned by King Louis XV as a gift to his lifelong love, the Marquise de Pompadour. Madam de Pompadour was a legendary patron of the Arts and the King's official mistress who had influenced and supported the inception of the Royal Manufacture of Sévres where she brought together France's finest ceramicists and scientists. The King had asked the master-ceramicists of the time to create a field of perfumed white roses in the greenhouse of the Castle of Bellevue.

As an hommage to the woman behind the manufacture where they still work today, Sèvres' master-ceramicists keep fabricating a small series of white roses every year.

Made of Sèvres' renowned paperweight biscuit porcelain, the soft rose petals - like a women skin - would hold perfume scent.  Each petal is hand-modeled from the soft porcelain paste. This unique technique inherited from the 18th Century, is called Pastillage.
