In Germany around 1750, the fashion transforms the earthenware containers into trompe l'oeil.
On the table are terrines, butter dishes, vases imitating animals, vegetables and fruits
and fruits, transforming them into real works of art. This fashion spreads in Europe
(Belgium and Italy) to arrive in 1780 in France. The factories of Sceaux, Bordeaux, Rouen, Marseille and Samadet succumbed in turn. This fashion will fascinate Europe for about thirty years (1750 - 1785).
