Recognised as one of the Limoges regions finest porcelain manufacturers, Limoges continues to evolve and impress worldwide. We have sold this fantastic product for now over a decade, and have witnessed the brand go from strength to strength. Raynaud is a family story; three generations who, since the 19” century have perpetuated with great talent the Limoges porcelain tradition.
First Martial, who bought the Montjovis factory in1919 and asserted his ambitions through multiple collections in classical shapes, with patterns strongly inspired from Art Nouveau and Art Deco. He also created the beautiful Czarinas’ cups with motifs reminiscent of the Saint Petersburg palaces, but above all the amazing “pearls and enamels” borrows from the Hungarian Tradition.
Then Andre took over from his father in 1952, and brought the company the richness of his personality’s multiple facets. The industrial innovations of this heir to time-humoured craftsmanship allowed him to product bold, modern collections, in square shapes, still displayed today in various museums, including the Georges Pompidou Center in Paris.
He also reproduced the so-called “Compagnie des Indes” patterns on celadon or ivory porcelain, and the works of world famous painters such as Dali, Cocteau, Arman or Raymond Loewy.
In 1992 Bertrand becomes with the support of the French goldsmiths Ercuis, CEO of the company. His creative vision is more cantered on new lifestyles and gastronomy. He designs with celebrated American chef Thomas Keller, an avant guardist collection of containers. He enjoys partnering with prominent decorators such as Christian Tortu or Alberto Pinto, who image strong, timeless decorative patterns for the brand.
Raynaud is today renowned for its very unique porcelain, perceived as a world famous reference. From president Harrision’s 1892 plates to Lady Diana’s or Dustin Hoffman’s, Raynaud can boast having had many presidents and celebrity clients and designed creations for prestigious venues and having worked with a number of artists.
