A Prestige item, limited to one.
The Prestige Sevres Series is the latest addition to the Prestige Collection from Royal Collection Trust. Each piece in this series is based upon individual pieces within the Royal Collection, all of which were originally produced in soft paste porcelain by the Sevres Porcelain Manufactory near Versailles in France and acquired by George IV for the Collection.
Made by skilled craftsmen in Stoke-on-Trent, the heart of the English 'potteries' each Prestige Sevres dish has been painstakingly produced entirely by hand using techniques largely unchanged for 250 years so as to reproduce the originals as closely as possible using 21st century materials.
Many years ago hand painting was more widespread in the industry, but now only a handful of ceramic artists remain and one of the most respected and 'collected' artists in the industry today – Lee Price, has painted the Royal Collection Prestige Sevres Plate. Lee left full time education in 1988 and was recruited by Royal Doulton as a Figurine Painting Apprentice where he learnt the basic skills of ceramic, on glaze painting. From there, Lee began a 7 year apprenticeship with Minton as Prestige Artist training under the renowned artist Lynn Sumner who had in turn been trained by the head Minton Artist Lawrence Woodhouse. Highly trained as one of the best and few remaining ceramic artists in the UK, for over 20 years now Lee has worked on many commissions for wealthy clients around the world ranging from the Sultan of Brunei to Sir Elton John!
Produced by the skilled artists and craftsmen of the Staffordshire 'potteries', this unique piece is the only one in existence. It is a true work of art and modern day Museum Piece.
