There is an art to making French porcelain and the Maison of Laure Selignac (www.laureselignac.com) is much more than that of a simple French porcelain maker. The Maison of Laure Selignac is a rare gem in the modern world of Limoges porcelain and fine china. This is where art, history and functionality meet.
Founded in 1919, the Maison Laure Selignac takes great pride in respecting the traditional methods of French porcelain makers according to the techniques practiced by the Royal School of Sevres. These artisans are upholding not only historically important traditions but they are translating that know-how into a new context designed for today’s modern decors. Today, the Maison Laure Selignac has become a reference of outstanding standards in the world of modern French porcelain.
But, you will also find Laure Selignac in the homes of those who treasure beautiful and unique things . . . those who appreciate fine art, have sophisticated tastes and a sincere appreciation of craftsmanship. The porcelain from Laure Selignac combines all of these elements.
Laure Selignac is a wonderful example of how modern French porcelain has evolved over the centuries. The group continues to produce many of their classic collections such as the Madame Pompadour Collection or the well-regarded Empire Collection. But, they have also pushed forward with innovative designs such as the monochromatic Butterfly cup featured recently by a popular Russian magazine. Designs like these are chic and daring yet steeped in history. It is impossible to look at it without admiring the fine hand-painted details, the delicate forms of this Limoges porcelain and the elegantly placed gold relief. Each piece is unique. Each piece — a work of art.
The Maison Laure Selignac was recently recognized by the French Ministry who awarded Laure Selignac the prized EPV Label (Living Heritage Company).
This distinction is awarded to those companies in France who adhere to historically important artisanal processes and industry know-how when producing their products. Founded at times on centuries of experience, EPV-labelled companies look resolutely towards the future. These companies are able to translate France’s rich cultural and industrial heritage with fresh approaches meeting today’s needs.
