French Faience Appraisal

lorem ipsum

Faïence is a pottery technique where a terracotta body is covered by a glaze which includes tin oxide to give an opaque white ground. This technique was originally developed in the Middle East and later used in Europe to imitate Chinese porcelain before the secret of the method of making porcelain was discovered. The faience industry rose in popularity in France throughout the 17th and 18th century amongst all social classes. The nobility in particular commissioned grand pieces to replace their silver plates, which had to be melted down on Louis XIV’s command to pay for a series of expensive wars. The foremost faience centres included Rouen, Nevers, Marseille, Moustiers and Strasbourg.
