Hard porcelain in Paris in the early 19th century
In contrast to the faience factories, porcelain factories flourished under the Empire, particularly in Paris. The period 1800-1820 can be considered the golden age of porcelain in Paris. There were nineteen manufactures in Paris in 1800, but only seven of them were founded during the Ancien Régime: Dihl and Guérard, Houzel, Lemaire and Josse, Pouyat and Russinger, Schoelcher, Despréz and Nast.
In contrast to the period of the last twenty years of the 18th century, marked by the passage from rocaille to antique simplicity, the first thirty years of the 19th century saw the opposite, evolving from antique sobriety to rococo. Our sugar bowl, with its simple and elegant form and frieze decoration, bears witness to the virtuosity of the craftsmen in Paris at the beginning of the 19th century. The richness of the gilding highlights also shows that this is a true quality piece.
