Information: A bit of History,
Arras would not be Arras without its “Bleu” since 1770.
A family of four sisters set up a porcelain factory. The factory closed in 1790, being no heirs to pass the know-how.
In the 1960’s, Henri Caudron rediscovered the technique and revived the Arras porcelain. Later, Maurice Segard, a porcelain decorator continued the tradition.
