Chantilly porcelain was born in the 1730s thanks to Louis-Henri de Bourbon, prince of Condé , who decides to found a porcelain factory in order to produce pieces in the style of Japanese porcelain that he particularly likes. All of elegance and good taste, Chantilly porcelain is immediately distinguished by its extreme refinement and the quality of its paste (mixture of Aumont sand and potash, lemon marble from Luzarches). The simple line is directly inspired by the oriental style which contrasts with the busy productions of the time. It is the pinnacle of the "Khakiemon" style and its polychrome decor. After the prince's death (1760/1800), Chantilly porcelain evolves and returns to more classic trends with the "twig" and "carnation" decor, in shades of blue. But the 19th century was fatal for Chantilly porcelain.
