Cindy Sherman has created this Limoges porcelain tureen set 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 tureen and platter is silk-screened and painted at Ancienne Manufacture Royale, fired on four different occasions, and then individually signed and numbered.

This tureen is originally available in four traditional 18th-century colors: apple green, rose (SOLD OUT), royal blue. and yellow (SOLD OUT). Each color is in an edition of 25.
