"Napoleon Medallion - Earthenware By Rubelles 1839-59"
In 1836, Baron Alexis du Tremblay, owner of the Château de Rubelles, joined forces with Baron de Bourgoing and created the Rubelles factory which would be in operation from 1839 to 1859. He used a clay paste which turned white from the first firing, known as "cailloutage", an English invention (Josia Wedgwood). The earthenware was made according to a derivative of lithophany: the dough is hollowed out, fired a first time ("biscuit") and then enamelled: (the larger the hollow, the darker the glaze), a second firing completes the making. The decors are very varied, inspired by the taste of the time: romantic characters, Orientalism, the taste of the Middle Ages and the troubadour style. Numerous decorations of vines and vines recall that Rubelles takes its name from rubella vinea, in the Middle Ages the village was then covered with vines. Some famous paintings are copied like the Virgin of Saint Sixtus by Raphael. There are several brands: ADT is that of Alexis du Tremblay, only made between 1839-59.
