A Sevres Cup and saucer, circa 1768

Sèvres was the finest porcelain manufactory in Europe from the mid-eighteenth century. Known for its unrivalled techniques and complex methods of production, the factory produced rich and extravagant wares sought after by the wealthiest of patrons.
Sèvres porcelain surpassed all others in the quality of its painting, and some of the most prized designs were of mythological, classical and historical subjects. From the 1760s, pieces were also often embellished with gilt bronze, which added to the opulence of the porcelain – making it a highly desirable ornament for luxurious interiors.
Today, the Royal Collection contains the most important assemblage of Sèvres porcelain in the world. Much of it was acquired between 1783 and 1830 by George IV (1762–1830), who popularised the taste for French porcelain in Britain.

Hi Yolanda, let's have Earl Grey tea together served in the above cups with a big slice of millefeuille each. Wouldn't be nice?

You are welcome Irma and Jillian.

Bekka, hand painted china must have taken plenty of time to finish and they probably produced a small number of them..that's why they were so expensive.
