Cindy Sherman has created this Limoges porcelain dinner service in a limited edition after the original design commissioned by Madame de Pompadour (née Poisson) in 1756 at the Manufacture Royale de Sevres.

The self-portrait image of the artist as Madame de Pompadour has been transferred onto porcelain through a complex process which requires up to 16 photo-silkscreens. Each dinner plate is silk-screened and painted at Ancienne Manufacture Royale.

This dinner service is available in four traditional 18th - century colors: apple green, rose, royal blue, and yellow (sold out). Each color is in an edition of 75.
