A new reference book, large size, about all different means of decoration at the FF and Gabriel Fourmaintraux factories in Desvres.

Watercolor prints, poncifs, stamps and transfers are shown through quite 1000 pictures.

You'll discover the marvelous Rouen decors from the FF factory, dating between 1890 and 1920; you'll also enjoy these magnificent porcelains from the Gabriel Fourmaintraux factory, dating between 1905 and 1925. You'll also discover lots of cracquelware and earthenware.

There are about 10 pages French text, but, as wrote one of my Friends from Overseas, no need for a translation; everything stays in the first blue book, and all these splendid pictures tell enough!

What a joy for the collector to find in this book the original watercolor which had be used as model by the painter for decorating perhaps  the nicest piece of his collection ?

Don't hesitate to ask for a reproduction of this  watercolor, or part of it ...
