Impératrice Eugénie

Léonce Ribière, a designer, created a pattern for the Empress Eugénie, which can now be seen in the Haviland Porcelain Museum in Limoges. His pupil Lassère reworked on his model, which later became the foundation of the Impératrice Eugénie pattern produced by Haviland in 1967, and still offered today. The Empress Eugénie contributed a great deal to the cultural life of the Court and France, and helped create the Napoleon III style.This pattern is decorated by several violets. In the language of flowers, the violet represents timidity, modesty and decency, referring to the little corolla that seemingly hesitates to emerge from its nest of leaves.
