Raynaud, a family story

Three generations who, since the 19th century, have perpetuated with great talent the Limoges porcelain tradition.

First Martial, who bought the Montjovis factory in 1919 and asserted his ambitions through multiple collections in classical shapes, with patterns strongly inspired from Art Nouveau and Art Déco. He also created the beautiful Czarinas' cups with motifs reminiscent of the Saint Petersburg palaces, but above all the amazing "pearls and enamels" borrowed from the Hungarian tradition.

Then André took over from his father in 1952, and brought the company the richness of his personality's multiple facets. The industrial innovations of this heir to time-honored craftsmanship allowed him to produce bold, modern collections, in square shapes, still displayed today in various museums, including the Georges Pompidou Center in Paris.

He also reproduced the so-called "Compagnie des Indes" patterns on celadon or ivory porcelain, and the works of world-famous painters such as Dali, Cocteau, Arman or Raymond Loewy...

In 1992, Bertrand becomes, with the support of the famous French goldsmith Ercuis, CEO of the company. His creative vision is more centered on new lifestyles and gastronomy. He designs, with celebrated American chef Thomas Keller, an avant-guardist collection of containers. He enjoys partnering with prominent decorators such as Christian Tortu or Alberto Pinto, who imagine strong, timeless decorative patterns for the brand.

Raynaud is today renowned for its very unique porcelain, perceived as a world-famous reference.
