Biography :
The Faïenceries et Émaux de Longwy were founded by Charles Régnier in 1798 and were quickly noted for the quality of their earthenware, notably by the Emperor. However, the Company had to be sold in 1815 to Jean-Antoine de Nothomb, who developed fine white enamels until his death. It was not until 1832 and the takeover of the company by his son-in-law, Baron Henri-Joseph d'Huart, that many technical innovations appeared, such as printing on earthenware and new glazes.
A new turning point was initiated by his two sons in 1865 with the desire to compete with ceramics from the Far East which met with great success on import by concentrating on the production of cloisonné and the use of black rings. This production is based on the arrival of Amédée de Caranza around 1872, giving birth to Émaux de Longwy whose productions were praised during the Universal Exhibition of 1878. This recognition allowed the earthenware factory to call on numerous artists such as Carrière, Cirode, Croisy, Kilbert, Kruytenbrouwer, Clairin, Quost, Morlon, who will bring their own technical innovations, contributing to the notoriety of this manufacture throughout the world.
