Description Extended Information
History of Raynaud Limoges

Founded in 1849, the Montjovis manufacture was built on the hill bearing the same name, alongside eleven porcelain manufactures.

Under Napoleon III, it became famous for its technically complex works. This industrial "tour de force" mainly resides in achieving the harmony of colors resulting from years of research, opening the way to infinite combinations of fade-resistant decorations still used by porcelain makers.

The Montjovis kiln is the only one left today, on the original location of the Raynaud manufacture.

Martial Raynaud bought Montjovis in 1919. The firm soon grew to become RAYNAUD & Co in 1925, and stated its ambition with this now well-known hallmark: an R with a laurel branch.

Today, Raynaud still makes and decorates in Limoges unique porcelain, with a marked preference for relief shapes and generously colored and gilt decorations. For over two centuries Limoges Porcelain has been the synonym of quality, known and recognized on every continent.
