The St. Nazaire Museum contains a fine collection of Sèvres, vases, bisques and medals. A vase in pastel blue bears the date 1794.
Bourbon also has a major collection of white clay figurines.
Mrs. Rouvier Jeanlin, who directed the scientific study of the figurines produced at Bourbon, in the Breuil district, in the 1st and 2nd centuries, has 25 different types of Venus attributed to Bourbon coroplaths (ancient clay potters). A figurine from one of these "Bourbon" moulds was found in a necropolis in Riddes (Valais, Switzerland). Mrs. Rouvier Jeanlin DAF No. 25 p.40
