Sévres porcelain from the Principal floor of Carlton House

George’s love of French decorative arts was, above all, apparent in his collection of Sèvres porcelain. At Carlton House he amassed a vast array of vases and dining wares, taking advantage of the sales in Paris following the French Revolution to purchase some of the finest pieces available. These five vases, matched to make a set or garniture, were displayed on the principal floor.

Three of the vases purchased in 1813, the remaining pair first recorded in 1826
