Description

High-fired earthenware and other decorations.

Open to the public since 1995, the Musée de la Faïence de Marseille gives pride of place to the art of faience (earthenware) pottery, which, introduced in the 13th century, reappeared in Marseille and Provence at the end of the 17th century and was at its height in the 18th century.

High-fired decorative creations on mythological, religious, Far Eastern, Romanesque and hunting themes from the factories of Clérissy, Héraud, Leroy and Fauchier are followed after 1750 by those from the Perrin, Savy, Robert and Bonnefoy factories, with low-fired decorations on floral, rural, animal and Chinese themes.
A complete art!
