Lille Porcelain - (Ceramics Porcelain France)

Lille Porcelain - (Ceramics, Porcelain, France) A soft-paste porcelain factory was founded at Lille, France, about 1711 and continued in production until 1730, although production seems to have been small and examples are rare. A hard-paste factory was established about 1784 and lasted until the early years of the nineteenth century. This factory, the first in France to use coal for firing, had an appointment to the Dauphin, hence its mark, a crowned dolphin.
