Madame de Pompadour’s snuffbox – Waddesdon Manor

Art, dogs, and a famous royal mistress… what more could you want from a podcast episode? To round off Season 1 of Past Matters, I talk to Dr Mia Jackson, Curator of Decorative Arts at Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire, about a beautiful snuffbox depicting the beloved dogs and birds of Madame de Pompadour, the mistress of Louis XV of France. Listen in to learn more about France’s most famous mistress, the complicated art of porcelain making, and Mia’s thoughts on the identity of the pampered pooches depicted.
