Some informations about the history of Creil Montereau manufacture:

The pottery of Creil (Oise), famous enough to be quoted by Gustave Flaubert in his book “L’education sentimentale”, was founded in 1797. After several bankruptcies, production increases in the early nineteenth century, probably thanks to its new owner, St. Cricq Casale, and the arrival of Jacques Bagnall in the management team.

In 1840, the year St. Cricq Casale dies, the Creil factory merges with the one of Montereau (Seine et Marne). The company becomes “Creil and Montereau Faïenceries” under the name Lebeuf, Milliet & Co. (LM & Co.), until 1876. The production of the two earthenware factories remains similar until 1895, the year the factory in Creil closes after a fire.

Production with the mark Creil et Montereau continues until 1920. Between 1920 and 1955, the mark “Hippolyte Boulanger Creil et Montereau” (HBCM) is used.
