Circa 1880s
Keller & Guerin was a family business producing flow blue, mulberry, and polychrome faience from the 19th to early 20th centuries.  Jacques Chambrette built his first factory in 1728 in Luneville in the Lorraine Province close to the River Muse.  Chambrette began exporting to Italy, Poland, Germany, Switzerland, and the Netherlands.  Chambrette opened a second factory in Saint-Clement in 1758.  In 1786 the Luneville factory was bought by Sebastien Keller from the descendants of Jacques Chambrette.  Around 1832 the son of Sebastien Keller and brother-in-law Guerin assumed control.  This partnership resulted in the mark K&G and the company lasted for 137 years.
