"I've always loved the romantic aspect of English
porcelaine...there is something so feminine about the English
style of home decor."
Seyssel remembers the special pleasure of meals served on
her mother and grandmother's beautiful China during her childhood
in Montpellier, France.
Those childhood memories evolved into a collector's
passion. Over the past ten years, Seyssel has collected a
vast stock of porcelain, primarily English blue and white,
but also romantic pieces from around Europe.
"I wanted to give other collectors the
possibility to find pieces that would match their sets,"
she says. If you provide a photo or details, Claire will try
to track down additional pieces for your existing dinner service.
The Claire S. boutique also features stenciled
linens handmade by Seysell, and specializes in marriage lists.
The Galerie du Chateau Art Gallery, run
by Claire's husband, occupies the adjourning boutique
