Maker : One of the great porcelain manufacturers at the turn of the last century, William Guerin W. Produced exquisite wares in Limoges and its history reflects that high quality.
Guerin was initially a standalone company but merged with the iconic firm Jean Pouyat just before World War 1. Shortly after the war ended, the combined company became part of the renowned Limoges firm Bawo & Dotter (Elite Works), which continued to use the Guerin mark.
