Vincennes and early Sèvres porcelain : from the Belvedere Collection / Joanna Gwilt
- Machine generated contents note: Catalogue entries.
- The glittering and colourful opulent wares of the renowned eighteenth-century French royal Sèvres manufactory are prominently displayed in palaces and art galleries throughout the world. By contrast, the comparative delicacy and simplicity of the beautiful wares of the Vincennes porcelain works, out of which the Sèvres factory evolved, remain relatively unkown, even to porcelain experts. This book is based on the Belvedere Collection of Vincennes and early Sèvres porcelain, started 40 years ago with the modest purchase of an early Vincennes cup and saucer, but which has since grown to be one of the world's most comprehensive study collections for the rare early pieces of these two factories.-- from the dust jacket.
