Boyer was decorating Paris Porcelain at his address in Reu de la Paix in the 1840's-50's. He partnered, then succeeded the Feuillet workshop, and is known for supremely fine and beautiful painting, including armorials. Many of these are English commissions. Jean-Pierre Feuillet, the son of a pastry chef to the the Prince de Condé.He learnt to paint in Chantilly, at a school funded by the Prince. He must have really appreciated his father's pastries, as when Jean-Pierre showed ambition to open a decorating studio in Paris, he did so under the Prince's protection, in 1814. This establishment on the Rue de la Paix became renown for the highest quality decoration, a'supplier to the aristocracy'. As such, his styles were the absolute latest, featuring all the Neo-Classical lavishness of the Restoration period. Each piece is usually hand-marked'Feuillet'.
He took on a partner, Boyer, who continued at the same address after Feuillet's death in 1834, mantained the creation of fine quality porcelains, and proudly marked marked'Boyer, successor to Feuillet'. This item is in the category "Pottery, Ceramics & Glass\Decorative Cookware & Tableware\Plates".
