Edme Samson better known as the “Great Imitator,” started his porcelain repair and replacement service n Paris in the 1830’s. His firm became known for quality reproductions of famous museum pieces reproduced for clients that desired similar pieces. Samson expertly copied a wide range of pieces including Chinese Export, Meissen, and Derby. His copies were so artistic and exquisite that they have become collectible in their own right.
