    The marie-antoinette collection: Queen marie-antoinette’s service was delivered to the versailles palace on the 2nd of january in 1782 by the royal sèvres manufactory. Its gracious “comte d’artois" shape, enhanced by its “pearl and cornflower" decoration, is enchanting in its delicate simplicity, its decoration placement seemingly improvised. The cornflower, a simple wild flower, was a favourite of the queen. It was the colour of her eyes and she would gather them in fresh bouquets at the country retreat of her hamlet in the petit trianon. The restrained alignment of the strikingly realistic pearls reveals to us the sovereign’s innate penchant for luxury. The pattern of cornflowers is placed between two rows of pearls, set against a green background, and highlighted by golden filets. Looking as if they have been freshly gathered, a simple bouquet of wild cornflowers decorates the centre of the plate. Only two of the original pieces from this celebrated dinnerware service can still be found as part of french national collections : One is held by the versailles château and the other by the louvre museum.

    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.
