Clay, water, extensive forests. The setting up of a major centre of the ceramics industry seemed to be predestined between Sarreguemines and Lunéville. It all began in 1728 with the opening of the ceramics works in Lunéville. This was followed by plants in St-Clément and Sarreguemines, in 1790. For 200 years, the company improved its know-how, competing to raise the art of ceramics to new heights of ingenuity, skill and beauty. By the19th century, Sarreguemines enjoyed a well-established reputation which was further enhanced by artists such as Loux, Cyfflé, Steinlein, or Gallé. New plants were built in Digoin, and Salins. Sarreguemines manufacture has produced stunning and rare majolica oyster plates.
