Publisher's description: The Sidney R. Knafel Collection of French Faience features a broad collection of over 150 pieces of grand feu (high fired) French faience principally from the factories of Nevers, Rouen, Marseilles, Moustiers, Moulins, and Lyon, ranging from 1580 to 1780. Amassed over the past fifty years, this exceptional collection encompasses an engaging variety of the most important faience centers of this creative period, representing many unique styles. It reveals the full development of the "French style", derived from Italian origins. With introductions, essays, and entries in both English and French contributed by curators, scholars, and dealers in the field, this catalogue strives to generate an increased awareness of faience in the US. This impressive collection is a rarity in private hands and is not often deeply collected nor displayed by museums.
