Sèvres ceramics are the most famous and illustrious makers of ceramics in France and considered by many to be the finest in the world. The history of their work is a story of French craftsmanship and pride.
Initially set up at the beginning of the 19th century by Alexandre Brongniard, then Director of the Sèvres Porcelain Manufacture, the Musée National de Ceramique de Sèvres houses one of the world’s largest collection of ceramics from all countries, periods and techniques.
Located in a large building specially built in 1876 on the banks of the river Seine, the Musée National de Ceramique de Sèvres contains over 50,000 ceramics of which 10,000 are permanently on public display.
Spread over 18 rooms on two floors the collection includes ceramics from antiquity to modern times, from China to Sèvres, including pottery, tin glazed earthenware, stoneware, siliceous pottery and porcelain. The third floor is devoted to temporary exhibitions which are usually presented thematically, with each exploring a difference aspect or period.
The Musée National de Ceramique de Sèvres is a challenge from one of the great ceramic manufacturers. They have gathered examples of the finest ceramics from across the world to prove that theirs is finer.
It is a bold move and one that is frequently successful. Come see all that this extraordinary museum has to offer with the Paris Pass sightseeing card.
