Description

According to the legend, the Jattes Tétons were fashioned by casting the royal bosom of Marie-Antoinette. In 1787, Jean-Jacques Lagrenée le Jeune and Louis-Simon Boizot created the Bol Sein, also called Jatte tétons at the time, for the dairy of Rambouillet, a leisure farm offered by the King Louis XVI to Marie-Antoinette. There, the Queen and her close female friends came to relax and enjoy the bucolic atmosphere. The decoration of this dairy followed the theme of milk, evoking Etruscan shapes as well as neo-classic artwork. Sèvres’ porcelain objects sought new and ambitious shapes: Graeco-Roman-inspired goat head pots, Etruscan-handles vases, and cow-feet terrines.

Sèvres

A bearer of the French cultural heritage, Sèvres has been carrying forward its legacy of artistry and craftsmanship for over three centuries now.
Sèvres was founded in 1740 just outside of Paris, and operated there until, in 1756, Madame de Pompadour – legendary patron of the arts, and official mistress to the King of France – convinced Louis XV to bring the finest ceramicists of France closer to Versailles. The historic landmark of the Royal Porcelain Manufacture was built in Sèvres right next to the Court, where the master-ceramicists still work today. Now catering to an international clientele, the workshops have long produced the porcelain and sculptural works for the King’s Court. 
Since its inception, Sèvres has built a significant portfolio of museum pieces and ceramic sculptures acquired by international private and institutional collections, and has been involved since the outset in collaborations with such luminaries such as Auguste Rodin, Émile-Jacques Ruhlmann in the 1920’s, Alexander Calder and Serge Poliakoff in the 1950s and 1960s, and Louise Bourgeois, Pierre Alechinsky, Zao Wou-ki, and Fabrice Hyber. Collaborations with Modern and Contemporary artists include Yayoi Kusama, Etorre Sottsass, Bertrand Lavier, Pierre Soulages, José Levy, Christian Biecher, Pierre Charpin, Michele De Lucchi, Barthélémy Toguo, and Andrea Branzi.
Since 2014, Sevres has unveiled several of their more recent artistic collaborations at Les Ateliers Courbet, including the collections of Dutch Design luminaries Aldo Bakker, and Scholten & Baijings. Les Ateliers Courbet opens the gates of the manufacture to the United States, presenting a rotating selection of works and ongoing access to the French workshops for private commissions and re-edition orders.
