French faience is a tin-glazed earthenware form of pottery that dates back to the 16th century. It was originally brought to France by Italian artisans. Among the French nobility faience gained sudden status when Louis XIV’s sumptuary laws required the melting down of gold and silver objects for coinage. Courtiers turned to locally produced pottery to replace their elaborate dinner services.
