Jacob Petit was one of the most famous porcelain artists of the 19th Century. After travelling extensively in Europe, he returned to France and established a porcelain manufactory in Sèvres by 1830. When his business expanded, he moved to a rented factory in Fontainebleau in 1834 and by 1838 was already offering highly-prized ornamental objects to a distinguished clientele. His work was an innovative fusion of Neoclassical, Rococo, and Romantic elements blending complex motifs and sculptural forms using a lively and distinctive palette. He is generally credited with the introduction of Rococo to the Parisian porcelain production in 1834, which was a radical break from the prevailing Neoclassical fashion.
