Information: A bit of History,
Jacques Chambrette Senior initially started the first fine pottery works in Lorraine in 1711. His son began in 1722 by trading faïence in Lunéville. He built his own factory there in 1730, just before he obtained the royal permission. He formulated a new type of earthward called “terre de lorraine” in 1748 based on the study of English potteries. As soon as 1749, he was granted the label of Official Royal Manufactory by Stanislaus I, former king of Poland. At the time, Lorraine being indeed an independent state, France levied heavy taxes on goods imported from there, reason why Jacques Chambrette established as early as 1758 an additional factory in Saint-Clément, Meurthe-et-Moselle, only 7 miles away, but located on French territory to escape those duties. In 1900, there were around 1,100 employees. The factory’s products had a worldwide reputation and participated successfully in various fields of art and industrial exhibitions. Development since 1968, the former pottery factory in Lunéville is now a company store, production continuing in Saint-Clément.
