Magnificent and rare little sandstone cradle signed Saint Honoré - Les - Bains underneath. It is nicely decorated with on both sides a scene representing landscapes and the rest is decorated with flowers.It is in perfect condition, neither cracked nor repaired.To report : a tiny little lack of yellow paint on one edge above a painted scene Saint-Honoré-Les-Bains Franch Manufacture : by creating a pottery factory in Saint-Honoré-les-Bains in 1835, the Marquis Theodore d'Espeilles ignores that he writes the first lines of a saga that will anchor the place and the city in the history of the earthenware. "His full name was Antoine Théodore Viel of Lunas d'Espeilles," says Marcel Moutet, a local historian. "The peculiarity of Saint Honoré's pottery is that it has approached all sorts of productions, from sandstone to earthenware, going through the slip, except porcelain," adds Guy Marin, a pottery specialist and Faience Nivernais. And in fact, it all started with a need for tiles ...In 1856, under the impulse of Charles-Frédéric Fischer, the pottery of La Montagne produced pieces more and more decorative and not only utilitarian. The site becomes a pole of attraction. Curists and tourists come to visit the facilities and discover the diversity of the pieces produced.
