Le grand dépot Emile Bourgeois

Porcelaine grand dépot 2We have several china sets of notorious brands on our site. Here, it is the brand of Emile Bourgeois, who owned a famous boutique in Paris. Emile Bourgeois' famous French-style store, located at 21 rue Drouot, in Paris, opened in 1862 and until its closure in 1902, was dedicated exclusively to high-end china. Emile Bourgeois (1823-1926), always remained faithful to his philosophy: to present the best and only the best in chinaware and earthenware.
The greatest china and earthenware houses, such as Theodore Haviland, Haviland Morel, Choisy le Roi and others presented in this Parisian store sold here the best of their porcelain and ceramics products, and without exaggeration, many were the products on Emile Bourgeois' counter that could be considered masterpieces. These pieces bear the mark "Le Grand Dépôt Emile Bourgeois at 21 rue Drouot".
Within Emile Bourgeois' Parisian shop, the first catalogue was also created, where one could purchase china objects or other products. They were not items made in series, but unique objects of applied and decorative arts. Due to the high quality of the objects during the first few years of the shop's existence, it was soon transformed into a "museum-shop" and it's these same objects which represented French china at international fairs, testifying the excellence in French chinaware and earthenware.
