Pearl and Cornflower
The first of Marie Antoinettes sets for this piece is her “à pearls et barbeaux” service I saw this set on display at the Petit Trianon, it was made for Marie Antoinette in 1781 and featured cornflowers (one of her favorite motifs) and pearls.
I love how simple and natural the set looks, all topped off with the regal and natural pearl decoration!
Laiterie Du Rambouillet
The Queen was no great fan of Rambouillet, so to help win her over the King commissioned a sort of pleasure dairy farm where she could play out here rural fantasies. Of course this dairy came with some spectacular Sevres porcelain! The set had an Etruscan theme in keeping with the mode for classicism, and some of the most whimsical designs!
A milk bucket of fine Sevres porcelain painted with a wood grain pattern, and the Jatte Teton (Nipple Cup) which was said to have been modeled on the queens own bosom!
Marie Antoinettes Travel Set
Always prepared Marie Antoinette had a travel set with small silver dishes and porcelain cups bearing her monogram and delicate swags of roses. She was even drinking fancy on the go!
Her Patterns Still in Production!
Interestingly enough these patterns are still available today! Bernardaud and the Ancienne Manufacture Royale, produce many services from the 18th Century, including Marie Antoiettes Pearl and Cornflower pattern and items from the Rambouillet Dairy.
Through another Limoges company Raynaud, the French museums sell items from her monogramed travel kit as well! The pattern is also sold sans monogram under the name "Petite Trinanon" sold Stateside.
