Halley's workshop 
[RdPdG] Charles Halley began his career as an earthenware maker on rue Montmartre in Paris. He appeared in almanacs as early as 1793. In 1803 he is mentioned in a notarial deed as an earthenware maker and porcelain merchant. His factory decorated porcelain whites from the Locré and Nast factories, among others. In 1811, Charles Halley married his daughter to the son Lebon, a crystal, earthenware and porcelain merchant. The partnership formed Halley Lebon from this period onwards, and lasted until 1822. During the Restoration, Halley Lebon came under the protection of the Comte d'Artois, the future Charles X, and was patented by Monsieur, the King's brother. Our suite of four plates therefore probably predates 1811.
