Information on the makers,found on infofaience, is as follows:
In 1728 Jacques Chambrette established the first earthenware factory in Lorraine in Lunéville besides the river Meuse. The factory was awarded the status of Manufacture Royale de Fayence by the Ducs of Larraine in 1749.
The Lunéville manufacture was one of the main rivals of English and German ceramics centres and Chambrette exported his wares to Italy, Germany, Poland, Switzerland and even The Netherlands.
From 1812, and during the following century, Lunéville was the seat of "Keller and Guérin" (Société KG), father and son-in-law. In 1758, Jacques Chambrette started a second faience factory in Saint-Clément, which lies in the diocese of the bishop of Metz. In the 19th century the originally German family Keller, soon allied with Guérin, gave new life to the faience factory.
