Overglaze painted decoration was introduced in the late 18th century by yet another Moustiers factory.
It is so funny to see how some social behaviors are exactly the same between France and the US, and others are completely different. Well, this was a big shock to me when I arrived in the US. I understood of course a man and a woman could be interested in each other in a romantic way, let me reassure you.
One of the very obvious difference is the dating game. But I was not aware that accepting to go out to dinner with a man alone gave the signal that I was possibly romantically interested in him.
Olerys introduced polychrome decoration, producing faience in the Bérain style painted in purple, soft green, and orange as well as blue.
Other polychrome faience wares produced by this factory were decorated with such designs as chinoiseries (designs in the Chinese manner), military motifs, medallions, and a so-called potato flower motif.

The Aluminia Faience factory date its history to the year 1862 founded by August Schittt (1834 - 1863).
In 1868 Philip Schou took over the factory and moved the production to Frederiksberg.
In 1882 he bought the Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Manufactory and the two companies merged to one.
The production of faience lived its own quite life in the shadow of the blooming interest for industrial production of porcelain at Royal Copenhagen.
Even for a married woman to go out with a male friend who is single: I often travel to Paris by myself, Leyla and Olivier stay in Paimpol, and have dinner with one (or several) of our good male friend(s), single or not.
