From the 1750s, the SEVRES Manufacture produced sculptures (figures and groups) intended for the decoration of tables. For the sake of symmetry in the ornament of rich apartments, the figures are created in pairs and the groups in threes.
These biscuit figures will be offered as diplomatic presents by the kings Louis XV and Louis XVI to show the world the refinement of decorative arts and French taste and prove the superiority of the know-how of Sèvres. The porcelain biscuit, which marks the identity of Sèvres, was adopted in 1752. Fired only once at its highest temperature, around 1380 °, the white porcelain takes on an appearance close to marble.
On the 18the century, the sculpture workshop is directed by chief artists who come once a week for the realization in biscuit of their models in raw earth, such as Étienne-Maurice Falconet (1716-1791) or Louis Simon Boizot (1743-1809), that they propose innovative models or drawings, such as the representations of children by the painter François Boucher (1703-1770) whose biscuits were a great success.
