The French faience pottery of the late 19th and early 20th Century revived a long history of the potters art, and embodied an artistic and social statement of the times. The earlier historic decors of Nevers, Rouen, Moustiers, Strasbourg, and Marseilles were captured and reproduced by factories at Quimper, Desvres, Boulogne-sur-Mer, Malicorne, and others. Well-known design trends, artistic influences, and color palettes established from previous eras, most notably the 18th Century, were embodied in whimsical styles and bold new shapes to meet the tastes of a growing audience. These decorative faience pottery crafts provided pleasure and fantasy as well as serving function and utilitarian purposes. At this time French Faience finally came into the height of popularity. Desvres, situated in north central France, has been a pottery center since early times, having excavated pottery kilns from the Roman era. In the 1870s the heyday of Desvres pottery began as the Fourmaintraux family of potters perfected their craft in the style and manor of old Rouen. Their retail operations provided cachepots, jardinières, plates, candlesticks, miniatures, and other decorative items. Desvres pottery is known for a creamy white background decorated with bright Delft blue, brilliant lemon yellow, iron red and sage green. One specialty form in Desvres was known as jaquelaines, lady and men figural tavern jugs.
