* Jacob Petit (1796-1865):

the most famous porcelain maker of the century did not have the vocation of ceramist. He begins by studying painting at Gros, then runs Europe. England, gives him the taste of the decorative object: on his return to France in 1830, he hastens to publish a collection of interior decoration including everything related to furniture. Soon, porcelain seems to him the best way to express his tastes. In Sèvres , an ephemeral workshop will be a first attempt. Around 1830, Jacob Petit , set up a business in Belleville. Success and ambition, in 1838, helped the porcelain builder Baruch Weill's modest enterprise in Fontainebleau; it is success, it has quickly tripled the number of workers. In 1850, he grouped his two factories in Avon, but a few years later, in 1862, left rue du Paradis-Poissonnière, yielding his business to one of his workers, Jacquemain.
