The Tradition collection is enriched by a new design "Les Aigrettes" drawn from the archives of our Manufacture.
A return to the roots, much appreciated by enamel lovers with this oriental collection.

A bit of history on the era of Japanese art, from which Longwy drew its inspiration to create new decorations:
"Asian arts experienced a triumph at the Paris Universal Exhibition in 1878. "It is no longer a fashion, it is a craze, it is madness" exclaimed Ernest Cheneau in 1879 in the Gazette des Beaux-Arts.
The beginnings of this Japanese taste were felt as early as the 1867 World's Fair. In 1859, on their return from the Orient, Collinot and Adalbert de Beaumont published "Recueil de dessins pour l'art et l'industrie". Their Japanese and Persian-Arabic style prints served as the basis for many creations in Longwy.
The d'Huart brothers, who took over the family faience factory in Longwy in 1855, had the idea of countering the massive imports of Far Eastern ceramics by applying the principle of partitioning or enclosing the decorations to faience. The idea was not to imitate them, but to replace them with similar products of a bright colour, less monotonous in appearance, elegant and more in harmony with the needs and tastes of the time. This technical revolution was implemented industrially by Amédée de Caranza in 1872, and Longwy enamels still benefit from it today.
Japonism will give Longwy its letters of nobility with its imagery of dragons, chimeras, fans, roosters, reeds, waders...".
