Additional Information

The pottery from Sarreguemines has a rich history dating back to the 18th century. Sarreguemines, located in the Lorraine region of France, grew into an important center for ceramic production.

The history of pottery in Sarreguemines began in 1790 when Nicolas-Henri Jacobi founded the first pottery factory. In the early years, the factory mainly produced simple pottery products.

However, it was under the leadership of Paul Utzschneider, who took over the factory in 1827, that Sarreguemines experienced a period of prosperity. Utzschneider brought technical innovations and artistic craftsmanship to the production processes. He introduced the production of fine pottery, particularly tableware, known for its quality and elegance.

Throughout the 19th century, the Sarreguemines factory expanded its range and began producing pottery in various styles, including neoclassical, Art Nouveau, and Art Deco. Sarreguemines tableware became highly sought after and was exported to countries around the world.

During World War II, the factory was heavily damaged, but production resumed after the war. However, in the following decades, the pottery industry underwent global changes, and Sarreguemines could not compete with cheaper imported products. The factory closed in 2007.

Nevertheless, the pottery from Sarreguemines remains an important part of French ceramic art history. Many of the original pieces are sought-after collectibles and testify to the craftsmanship and artistic excellence that put Sarreguemines on the map.
