For this exceptional Botanique service, the Ancienne Manufacture Royale selected the most beautiful pieces of the original set, ordered for Prince Guillaume II of Hesse in 1829. The entire service, composed of 566 pieces, required more than two years of dedicated work. It was the largest set ever made by the Royal Manufactory!
Acquired by Bernardaud in 1986, the Ancienne Manufacture Royale is part of French history. Offering exact reproductions of original 18th and 19th century museums pieces, Bernardaud helps to preserve a portfolio of skills and techniques that belong to France’s extremely rich cultural heritage while attracting attention to treasures created by porcelain craftsmen.
