More details

La Cartuja de Sevilla was born out of the entrepreneurial spirit of an English family who had fallen in love with Andalusia in 1841. The factory at the Cartuja monastery brought the industrial revolution to Seville. The quality of its tableware and decorative pieces is as much due to the industrial driven innovations imported by its founder as to the expert hands of the Seville artisans who were quick to incorporate them into their work.
Whilst Charles Pickman, the founder, was at the helm of the Company, he introduced several changes to the factory, from technical innovations in the ovens to exotic and fashionable designs of the time in the decoration of the crockery. Tableware and decorative objects from the Seville factory quickly gained international recognition: in 1862 and 1878, it received the gold medal at the Universal Exhibitions of London and Paris respectively. What is more, it became supplier to the royal household in 1871. The factory has proudly employed various generations of Seville artisans, as well as exporting its beautiful tableware from its beginnings half was round the world.

When you lay your table with a dinner service from La Cartuja you are doing so with an extraordinarily crafted history-laden object.
