EMPIRE PERIOD - RESTORATION. Dimensions: Height 16.8 cm. Length 15 cm. neck diameter 13.5 cm. John Nepomuk-Hermann Nast born May 13 1754 in Radwesbourg Austria and arrived in Paris in 1778. After a difficult start, he entered the porcelain manufactory of Vincennes alongside Antoine Hannong who works in the development of hard porcelain. The latter differs from the soft pulp used especially in Sèvres by the use of kaolin. In 1780, Nast follows Hannong, which creates a factory suburb Saint-Denis under the protection of the Count of Artois, and directs the workshop. In 1782, Nast created, in turn, its own Popincourt street porcelain factory. Despite the narrowness of its premises, its rapid success appears and refuses several offers of association on the part of his colleagues as well as the Spanish ambassador. His business flourished and production seem renowned since 1784 he moved to larger premises, purchased in 1791, rue des Amandiers Popincourt. The revolutionary period of 1792-1795 will be particularly difficult. Nast managed in extremis to keep his factory alive especially by borrowing to keep his workers. In 1796, he received a first award at the Exhibition of Products of French Industry. From 1800, he becomes the supplier of the new ruling class and in 1806 obtained the silver medal at the Exhibition of Products of French Industry. The year 1810 marks a milestone in the life of the factory. Nast is developing its decor dial. This patented process is to use a larger or smaller wheel, carved with water leaves and acanthus leaves to create a border that gives the illusion of chiseling. It combines this setting to use a nice, thick gilding. China high whiteness, the plot borders and friezes painted in gold are somehow marks the factories manufacture Nast. If Nast has based its success on the whiteness of its paste it not used less red colored backgrounds, blue, gold burnished effect, and Green said chromium empire green, developed by Louis Nicolas Vauquelin in laboratory Nast. Especially in its production of painted plates and vases that contributed to its reputation. That same year, 1810, he obtained a second patent for the manufacture of a paste porcelain he uses for "borders medallions and figures in relief." This technique allows him to excel in achieving busts inspired by his friend and collaborator sculptor Augustin Pajou (1730- 1809). He also produced vases in imitation of Wedgwood porcelain mixing hard cheese and biscuit. These pieces are characterized by the contrast between the glossy porcelain and white matte bisque ornaments which is the best effect. From 1811, Nast joins his two son, Henri Jean and Jean Francois who all continue the work of their father after his death in 1817 under the name "Nast brothers." Their partnership ended in 1831 and François Henri takes sole command of the factory until 1835 closing year of the house Nast. The factory makes its porcelain for French high society, several European courts and also created one of the oldest china service for the White House in Washington in 1814. In 1816, Nast is at his peak and carries a service tea and coffee for the marriage of Ferdinand VII of Spain and Isabella of Braganza now in the Archaeological Museum of Madrid. The torch passage appears particularly successful and during 1819 the French Industrial Products Exhibition of King Louis XVIII praises the qualities of the Nast brothers: "I am glad the past talent from father to son; I urge you to cultivate "They get a gold medal this year and the following years. The brothers continue the work of their father and great especially in the realization of large vases. Despite its success, the Paris factory will be sold in 1835.
