For several decades in the middle of the 18th century the Hannong family were proprietors of one of the best and most influential French faience factories at Strasbourg. Here German and French ceramic styles and techniques met and were fused. These figures were copied from a pair executed in Chantilly porcelain which in turn relied on a Meissen prototype.
