Porcelaine de Paris is a French porcelain manufacturing company, founded by Jean-Marx Clauss theApril 11, 1822.

Initially specializing in the creation of porcelain pieces (decorative objects, crockery and tableware, watches, jewellery), it is now a company that sells ceramic sanitary ware for export. The pieces are made with respect for ancestral traditions and the raw material, kaolin, by the master craftsmen of Porcelaine de Paris.
