The Bernardaud factory was established in 1863 by Rémi Delinières. It was located in Limoges, on the street which is now named Albert-Thomas Avenue. In 1895 Léonard Bernardaud became a partner of R. Delinières in the R. Delinières & Cie. Five years later the company was dissolved and replaced by the new company L. Bernardaud & Cie. In 1919 the company opened an office in New York. Léonard Bernardaud died in 1923 and his two sons, Jacques and Michel Bernardaud took over. The brothers expanded the company by introducing porcelain in an Art Deco style. The company survived periods of turmoil: The Great Depression and two world wars. In 1949 Michel Bernardaud died and Jacques Bernardaud remained alone as the head of the company. In 1962 the company's management was taken over by Michel Bernardaud's son, Pierre Bernardaud. He worked with the son of Jacques Bernardaud, Paul Bernardaud which in 1970 they took over another Limoges porcelain business, the Vignaud factory. In the 1990s, the Limoges Bernardaud factory was changed into a cultural center. In 2002 Michel Bernardaud established a Bernardaud Corporate Foundation, which mission is to renew the look of porcelain, reinvent it and explore new territories.
