Sèvres and Vincennes Porcelain from the Gustavo Seriñá Collection

This display of Sèvres and Vincennes porcelain celebrates a significant promised gift from Gustavo Seriñá to the Fine Arts Museums. Showing highly-decorated porcelain tea and dining wares, thirty pieces from this collection are from the early production of the French Royal Factory which was founded at Vincennes in 1740 and moved to Sèvres, just outside Paris, in 1756.  This presentation highlights the Museums’ growing collection and its ability to present new exhibitions and scholarship in the field of European eighteenth-century porcelain.
