Manufacture Nationale de Sèvres (est. 1740)
The porcelain factory of Sèvres is one of the most important European manufacturers of soft paste china. Since 1765, its headquarters have been based in Sèvres. Founded at Château de Vincennes outside of Paris in 1740, it began imitating Meissen porcelain in order to curb the import. In 1745, the production of soft past china was launched, which enabled a number of new shapes and colors. One of the most important clients of the factory was Madame de Pompadour (1721-1764). Louis XV paved the way for the reconstruction of the Sèvres manufactory. The manufactory came into royal possession in 1760. In 1790, it was nationalized. Today's Manufacture Nationale de Sèvres has a porcelain museum. (ala)
