Jacques Chambrette established a pottery in Lunéville in 1731 producing French faience. In 1788 the Lunéville factory along with the nearby works at St. Clément was purchased by Keller and Guérin. Lunéville produced majolica until the pottery closed in 1914.

Lunéville majolica is known for its bold colors, particularly turquoise and green. The pottery produced an astounding variety of asparagus and artichoke plates, servers and tureens in multiple patterns.

Size each approx: 3 cm (H) x 23 cm (D)
