Cindy Sherman (American, b. 1954).

This service for six includes breakfast dessert plates, cups, saucers, teapots, creamer and covered sugar bowl.

Manufactured in Limoges, France, the porcelain 21-piece tea service is made after the original design commissioned by Madame de Pompadour (née Poisson) in 1756 at the Manufacture Royal de Sèvres. Sherman’s image of herself as Madame de Pompadour has been transferred onto porcelain through a complex process which requires up to 16 photo-silkscreens. Each tureen and platter is silkscreened and painted at Ancienne Manufacture Royale, fired on four different occasions, and then individually signed and numbered.
