From Italy, manufacture of tin-glazed painted pottery spread to France, where it was referred to as “faience” after the Italian town of Faenza from which it was imported.
Faience was made in France from the 14th century but it took the arrival of Italian migrants in the early 16th century to stimulate production. Factories were established in Lyons, Nimes, Rouen, Marseilles, Nevers and elsewhere. Nevers became the most important centre, gradually developing its own style influenced by Baroque silverware and Chinese porcelain.. The factory at Rouen was notable for introducing blue and white decoration.
