"Given by the king to Madame de Pompadour" , the Royal glassworks settled in the grounds of his castle in Sèvres in 1762. It is quickly considered one of the best crystals in France.
Passionate about art, Louis XV's favourite is determined to dress the Royal table with the most beautiful glasses, as perfect as those by the Venetians. Under the direction of the Marquis de Marigny, brother of the Marquise de Pompadour, Cristal de Sèvres conquered a prestigious clientele throughout Europe.
It was during the reign of Charles X, however, that the recognition of Cristal de Sèvres' know-how exploded. In a century and a half Cristalde Sèvres and its luxurious glasses have definitely conquered lovers of French table art: to the aesthetics in the air of the time produced pieces is added a work of crystal without equal. One admires in particular the production of opalines that will become the jewels of the Crown.
In 1878, the Cristallerie de Sèvres participated in the Universal Exhibition in Paris by producing crystal pieces mounted in gold or vermeil.
