The oldest private manufacture in the country, having used the name "Sèvres" in its signature, is the manufacture of fine earthenware founded by Charles Lambert. The chemist Charles-Philippe Lambert (Lauterbourg, Ba s-Rhine, February 8, 175-Sèvres, August 7, 1835), after having created the "Manufacture of crystals and enamels of the Queen" and took care of a company of manufacture of enamel for watchmakers and jewelers, buys in 1797, buildings located at the bottom of the current Grande Rue. With Barthélémy Boyer and other associates, he founded a company for "the manufacture of terraces in the kind of those existing in England." The factory became operational in 1799 and two years later, about sixty workers. But in 1801, it is dissolved for financial reasons. His productions, extremely rare, because of the brevity of his existence, bear the mark "Lambert and Co." in hollow or the mark-shield painted by hand. The second company, entitled "Manufacture of white earth citizens Hupais, Gélot and Co.", is managed by Berlancour until 1804. Most of the pieces then produced are marked "Sèvres" in English letters and hollow. This mark is the one met most often after the departure of Lambert. After an interruption of four years, the manufactory, under the direction of Puibusque and Méry, produced fine earthenware printed under cover and no longer painted. In 1810, an architect, Michel-Marie Clavareau became the owner of the company, which he liquidated in 1815. The brand is "Sèvres" hollow.

The pieces, of neoclassical style, are often decorated with a decor, generally brown manganese, representing mythological scenes, historical, military, children's games, scenes of hunting, literary scenes, allegories ... Their scarcity , but also their quality, both in terms of painting and printing, make fine earthenware pieces from Sèvres ceramics highly sought after by collectors.
