The production of porcelain began in France in the 1730s. Porcelain in this era was becoming a symbol of luxury and associated with the names of Louis the 15th and his famous mistresses Madame de Pompadour and then Madame du Barry, who showed a lively interest in the work of the Royal porcelain manufactory.
