Replacements, Ltd.
Museum Tour II (page 4) - Sevres Vase

One of the oldest pieces featured in the Replacements, Ltd. Museum is this Sevres vase. The vase was produced in 1772 by the Sevres Company of Vicennes, France and is valued at $8,000. The vase was produced entirely by hand. The lid and body are trimmed in gold and feature an embossed beaded design.

Sevres Vase

The Sevres Company first opened under the proprietorship of the DeBois brothers in 1738. The company’s chief market was the aristocracy of France. Soon, the work of the Sevres factory caught the eye of King Louis XV. The King purchased many oversized vases and several dinnerware sets from the DuBois brothers. Eventually, King Louis XV became the primary shareholder of the company. The vase that is imaged here was produced during the last two years of King Louis XV’s reign.

The French Revolution began on July 14, 1789 with the storming of the Bastille. The Bastille was a prison that had long stood as a symbol of the monarchy’s political oppression. French peasants overtook France’s centralized government and the “Reign of Terror” ensued. The French Revolution caused the Sevres Porcelain Company to close its doors indefinitely. After The French Revolution ended, Napoleon Bonaparte reopened the porcelain factory. The Sevres factory continued producing porcelain dinnerware and giftware for the next century.
