    The botanique collection: On may 5, 1829 a man calling himself mr. Schaumbourg ordered from the royal sèvres manufactory a porcelain set ornate with floral wreaths. Guillaume ii of hesse, the german prince secretly bought himself a service for 60 persons. The original set was the largest set ever made by the royal manufactory. Sèvres was world-renowned for the talent of its painters as well as the craftsmanship behind its delicate porcelain. The last pieces of the service were delivered in october 1831 : The entire service, composed of 566 pieces, required more than two years of dedicated work. Botanique is inspired by the drawings and the work of the painter pierre-joseph redouté. The flowers are rendered with a great deal of realism, exceeding the traditional representation of bouquets in the xviii century and amphasizing the characteristics of each species. The botanical style was at its peak in the early xix century and reflects the taste of the time for encyclopedic knowledge. The name of each flower is engraved on the back of each plate. For this exceptional service, the ancienne manufacture royale selected the most beautiful pieces of the original set displayed in the museum at the fasanerie castle, located near fulda, germany.

    Bernardaud history :
    Today Bernardaud has become the major reference for french porcelain. Since 1863 the success of the company has been tied to a legacy that fuses tradition and innovation, artisan craftwork and industrial processes that define the richness, vitality and unique character of the brand.
    Bernardaud is indistinguishable from limoges, the city where in 1768, kaolin, the indispensable white clay used to make porcelain that is resistant, translucent and luminous, was discovered. Bernardaud is still proudly operated as a family business and in 2013 celebrated the 150th anniversary of its founding.
