Description

Some of the most beautiful and refined decorative objects ever made were created in France during the 18th century. The vivid bouquet on our elegant scarf recalls the rich floral decoration on Sèvres porcelain plaques, inlays, and vessels.

In 1759, King Louis XV took sole ownership of the Sèvres factory near Paris, which he named the Royal Porcelain Manufactory. The innovative factory hired the best artisans of the day to produce costly porcelain objects for the king, members of his court, and wealthy merchants. Our scarf celebrates these lavish creations.
