In the 1890s, a group of anonymous artists, potters and glaze chemists established the Glatigny workshop in Versailles, France, in order to produce ceramics that were equal to those produced in private studios. Although the company made stoneware in small quantities, it specialized in porcelain with crystalline effects and flambé glazes using materials imported from Africa and the South Pacific. Vases, inkwells and other objects were generally made in limited numbers, often mounted in silver by the Paris jeweler and silversmith Lucien Gaillard.
