Tableware, attention to service and diversity of gastronomy are part of French heritage. This major exhibition offers a history of French tableware from the 18th century to the present day, highlighting the development of decorative arts and contemporary creations by famous historical Manufacture and luxury French maisons.

From the decorative centerpieces that graced tables during the 18th century to new styles that simplified shapes, lines and functions, this superlative exhibition presents an overview of each of the major periods of the table and key historic moments that include an exceptional 18th century table with silver and a large porcelain service using a model created by the Sèvres Royal Manufacture for Madame de Pompadour, mistress of King Louis XV.
