Bibliography: "Pewter potters of Ancient Languedoc and Roussillon" by René Richard

We know of very many statutes of corporations of pewter potters from past centuries. From the tenth century onwards, they gradually acquired, on the one hand, regulations aimed at protecting their specificity and their productions, and on the other hand, brands or hallmarks identifying their members. But the first hallmarks that we know only date from the 13th century. It was not until the 17th century to see a general regulation come to fruition. The royal edicts of 1643 and 1691 indeed instituted two hallmarks for all of the “five farms of the Kingdom”: a mark of control and a mark of control. However, these texts were applied unevenly and a good number of objects have come down to us without any hallmarks or marked in a way that does not conform to these texts.
Let us recall in passing that these pitchers were measures for wine under the Ancien Régime. The capacity of those used in inns, drinking establishments, etc., had to be periodically controlled by the royal or ecclesiastical power to assure "good measure" to the consumer, but in fact, this regulation was little applied and the pitchers which wear gauging punches are very rare.
