* Claude Perrin earthenware maker of Nivernais origin came to settle in Marseille in 1736 where he died 58 years old in 1748. His widow, Pierrette Candelot continued the production under the name of “Veuve Perrin”. She signed an association contract with Honoré Savy, trained at the Academy of Painting and Sculpture in Marseille. This cooperation will last from 1760 to 1770. In 1774 the widow Perrin forms a second association with her son and Antoine Abellard, grandson of Antoine Clérissy. She will continue the operation until her death in 1794. Her son Joseph and her daughter Anne will succeed her until the final closure in 1803. (see blog antiquarian gaze)
