Claude Monet lived in his house in Giverny, in love with its exceptional gardens, which were tended by 7 gardeners. The property now belongs to the Académie des Beaux-Arts. Monet owned a collection of earthenware crockery, including a yellow and blue service specially designed by the artist for festive occasions. The artist's home is the second most popular tourist site in Normandy, just behind Mont-Saint-Michel.
The mission of the Claude Monet Foundation in Giverny is to preserve and bring to life the house and garden of this famous painter. For the boutique in 1976, it called on a Limoges manufacturer, R. Haviland & C. Parlon of Limoges to re-manufacture its yellow and blue model, which was a great success in France and abroad, notably at Tiffany's, which had exclusive rights to it in the United States.
