When you offer a gift in porcelain for your wedding anniversary, think about mentioning the history of porcelain to your partner.  The history of porcelain is a love story much like your own. . . rare, treasured and rich with experiences.

 

The development of fine porcelain began in the 6th century under the Tang Dynasty, thanks to the discovery and exploitation of numerous kaolin mines, a white clay used in the production of fine porcelain.

As soon as these early pieces of porcelain began to arrive in Europe, everyone was fascinated and wanted to find out the secret to this pure white porcelain.

It was not until the beginning of the 17th century that true fine porcelain (hard porcelain) was born in Europe.  This was thanks to the kaolin mines discovered in Meissen, Saxony.

 

In France, the Vincennes porcelain manufacturer, founded in 1738, produced very high quality porcelain on commission. The factory was moved to Sevres, France in 1756.  Beloved and supported by King Louis XV as well as Madame de Pompadour and Madame du Barry, the porcelain manufacturer at Sevres would soon dethrone the manufacturer in Meissen.

Later in 1765, we witnessed the discovery of the kaolin mines at Saint-Yrieix-la-Perche just south of Limoges.  With this discovery, Limoges porcelain became recognized as a more prestigious and sophisticated quality of porcelain than that coming from China. All of Europe began to adopt this pure white, hard porcelain from Limoges. . . the only exception was perhaps England who still preferred softer qualities of porcelain at the time. Today, the word “Limoges” is synonymous with quality in fine porcelain and is recognized around the world.

Interesting fact. . . Did you know that the longest marriage in France lasted for 81 years and 335 days!
