Paris - (Ceramics Porcelain)

Paris - (Ceramics, Porcelain)  Porcelain so designated should have been made at or near Paris. Quite a number of factories were established in the environs of Paris from the 1770's onwards; most of them made hard-paste porcelain. A few of the better-known: La Courtille, from about 1770, with porcelain in the German manner the speciality; Clignancourt, from 1775, under royal patronage, made Sevres-like wares; Rue Popincourt, from 1782, one of the larger Paris factories, noted for porcelain clock-cases; Fontainebleau, from 1795. The main speciality of the Paris factories seems to have been forging the early products of the more famous French factories.
