  • An afternoon of surprise and marvel in Sevre, France. The porcelain pots were the most beautiful objects of perfection and colour. 
  • Beautiful collections of porcelain in all its forms, and other materials, unfortunately poorly highlighted with only a small explanatory leaflet under the work in question. Magnificent achievements are presented. Unfortunately a Sunday visit so the workshops did not work.

  • Very large collection but unfortunately inaccessible. Information about each of the objects are arranged on little dated and legible labels. Some parts in the windows are very visible because of their height. Some vases under globe with different two-sided decorations are placed against the walls so that we cannot observe them completely. It is also the case in the main 1st floor room even if the presentation is breathtaking. I wish I could see the back of a plate for each factory to learn the distinctive mark. Some contemporary works showcases are presented with those antique... There is even a showcase of glass objects... In short, an impression of Tote and a museum to rethink and renovate (dilapidated floors) to dust off (layer of dust on the shelves books store). Cheer up!
