Excerpt from A General History of Porcelain, Vol. 2
A little porcelain factory was established here in a factory where faience had been previously made, about 1777 - 78, by two potters, father and son, named Vermonet, who are said to have had the authorization or the patronag... e of the Due d'orléans to sell their wares in the region of Melun. The privilege is believed to have been granted for a period of fifteen years, and this appears to have been about the duration of the enterprise. The porcelain is of good white paste, and the pieces are well made and finished with a good glaze. The pieces attributed to the factory comprise table ware, tea and coffee services, vases and ¿ower-pots, usually decorated with bouquets of ¿owers painted in a naturalistic style, and finished with neat and precise gilding in good solid gold.
