Cream Jug (France)

This is a Cream jug. It was manufactured by Sèvres Porcelain Manufactory. We acquired it in 1981. Its medium is enameled and gilt hard paste porcelain. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

This service shows the fascination with precise renderings from nature featured in Pierre-Joseph Redouté’s and other artists’ botanical studies and Sèvres porcelain during the early 19th century. Not all porcelain was made for entertaining large numbers of people—an intimate tête-à-tête with someone grand could require a small service such as this.
