This interesting factory at Rue du faubourg Saint-Denis, Paris, originated in the early 1770’s, set-up by Pierre-Antoine Hannong, with financial support from Louis-Victor de Fusée, Comte de Voisenon. It was financed by the Comte d’Artois from late 1779.
The ‘CP’ mark is for Charles-Philippe de France, brother of kings Louis XVI and Louis XVIII and to be the future King Charles X.
