Cindy Sherman has created this Limoges porcelain 21-piece tea service in a limited edition after the original design commissioned by the MADAME DE POMPADOUR (née Poisson) in 1756 at the Manufacture Royale de Sevres.
The self-portrait image of the artist as Madame de Pompadour has been transferred onto porcelain through a complex process which requires up to 16 photo-silkscreens. Each piece is silk-screened and painted at Ancienne Manufacture Royale, then individually signed and numbered.
This service is available in four traditional 18th-century colors: apple green, rose. royal blue and yellow. Each color is in an edition of 75.
