Richard-Ginori est 1735


In 1735, the Florentine Marquis Carlo Ginori founded a porcelain manufactory on his estate in Doccia, near Florence, Italy. The Ginori were successful merchants, influential in the world of Florentine politics. Investing his family's substantial wealth, Ginori began acquiring classical sculptures and ordering casts to create porcelain decorative art.

Florence had been a city of artisans since the Renaissance, and Ginori’s dream was to continue the Tuscan legacy for excellence. Ginori porcelains were collected by the Medici family and many of Europe’s aristocracy, including Napoleon. 1896, the Ginori company merged with Richard Ceramics, a Milanese manufacturer, and became Richard-Ginori 1735.
