From 1781, Lignereux has been known as the most daring creator of art objects.
With ceaseless aesthetic audacity, the maison specialised in the making of objets d’art and luxury decorative items and was celebrated throughout Europe. With boutiques both in Paris and London, and through exclusive deals with the porcelain manufactures Sèvres and Wedgwood, Lignereux became a destination for prominent art collectors.
Among its remarkable clientèle were Queen Marie-Antoinette, Emperor Paul I of Russia, the Prince of Wales (future King George IV), the Duke of Wellington and Emperor Napoléon.
In 2015, Lignereux was revived by créateur d’objets rares Gonzague Mézin, to offer new precious works made collectively with contemporary artists and artisans.
