4. Products
The 'Emaux et Faïences' products offered on this site are exclusively manufactured and distributed by MANUFACTURE DES EMAUX DE LONGWY 1798 at its operating site 3 rue des Emaux 54400 Longwy. All pieces are delivered with their certificate of authenticity. They bear the imprint of the Manufacture des Emaux de Longwy 1798, and the number corresponding to the print run for limited edition pieces, thus guaranteeing the originality of each piece.

Important information: Our Emaux objects are for decorative purposes only, do not pour water inside - Never use them for food.

The Longwy enamels are made of cracked earthenware, it is difficult to guarantee their watertightness. In order to overcome this drawback, we fill earthenware vases and small cone-shaped vases made of enamels with a waterproofing product, but sometimes all it takes is a pinhole in the inner surface for water to slowly seep into the clay.
In short, cracked earthenware vases such as Longwy are never really watertight and are intended more for decorative use than as a true container. Enamel balls and enamel vases, apart from the small cone vases, are not intended to hold water and do not undergo any waterproofing treatment.
