The Mennecy factory, which stood out exclusively in the 18th century, has always been one of refinement and excellence, both for its creations and its decorations. Soft porcelain appeared in France at the end of the 17th century to compete with porcelain from the Far East. It is a mixture of sand, lime and soda, coated, after a first firing, with a lead-enamel glaze. Which gives it a non-translucent appearance. As opposed to hard porcelain, based on kaolin. the very prestigious Manufacture de Saint Cloud, Vincennes, Sèvres, Chantilly, took up this process and illustrated this Art of Fire beautifully.
