The K&G Lunéville (France): In 1728 Jacques Chambrette established the first earthenware factory in Lunéville (France). As a result of its economic and artistic success, the factory became a notable rival to the expanding English and German ceramics centers and Chambrette managed to successfully export his wares to Italy, Germany, Poland, Switzerland and even The Netherlands. In 1922 Édouard Fenal bought the factories (2) and in 1979 bought out the Sarreguemines ceramics complex. Lunéville production stopped in 1981.
