Description
The Sevres China Company takes its name from the French porcelain manufactory known for its high quality ceramics. This company's ploy of using the Sevres name, however, did not work. They were in operation for only eight years producing semi-porcelain dinner wares, toilet, and tea sets. This small bird creamer would have been part of a novelty tea set.
