A quick look at a few good examples of Sevres porcelain in our Sevres Porcelain Gallery.
The Wallace Collection holds the finest museum collection of Antique Sevres Porcelain in the world.
The other great Sevres’ porcelain collections are housed at …
1. The Royal Collection at Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle
2. The Rothschild Collection at Waddeson Manor
Both collections were mostly put together in the nineteenth century.
Largely as a result of the French Revolution when so many great works of art came on the market. Saving them for future generations became a high priority for those that appreciate fine art and beauty.
