Charles-Antoine Didier (born 1756/7)
Biography
Works of Art

Painter, gilder and burnisher, op. 1787 - 1825.

His range of subject matter included monochrome figures, animal subjects, birds, trophies or attributes, landscapes, portraits, children, chinoiseries, coats-of-arms, arabesques and patriotic allegories. He sometimes worked as a gilder or burnisher. He also seems to be the only painter at the factory to have painted soft-paste 'dents' (presumably false teeth). Besides tea, service and useful wares, he also decorated a number of vases. He worked on both hard and soft paste.

In 1788 he married Louise-Ursule Gouverneur who had been working as a burnisher at Sèvres since 1786.
