Le Tallec worked in the tradition of the Vincennes and Sèvres porcelain. In thirty years, the studio created hand-painted porcelain tableware and painted on only the highest quality Limoges blanks. Such clients of Le Tallec included Queen Elizabeth II of England, Juliana Queen of the Netherlands, the Prince of Qatar Abdelaziz bin Ahmed Al Thani, the Shah of Iran Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, Kings Mohammed V and Hassan II of Morocco. In 1961, Le Tallec formed a fruitful collaboration with the silver and jewelry firm Tiffany & Co, which led to the Atelier Le Tallec's incorporation into the American company in 1990, one year before Camille's death in Paris. Together, Tiffany and Le Tallec designed successful original and private porcelain patterns that can be seen both at the Viaduc des Arts and in all Tiffany's stores in the United-States.
Over 60 years, Le Tallec has maintained traditional hand-painted porcelain. He preserved and revisited about 375 original and historical patterns signed by the Le Tallec's marks. Atelier Le Tallec was inducted as a member of the Grands Ateliers de France (the fifty best studios in France) in 2000. Le Tallec also acquired from 1935 to 1955 prestigious pieces of European porcelain.Welcome to the Antique Boutique.
