Featuring Gilles Personne de Roberval.
He was a French mathematician and physicist. He is the only one of his brothers and sisters to receive an education, from the age of 14, thanks to the parish priest of Rhuis, also chaplain to Queen Marie de Medici, who had noticed his keen intelligence.
The Faïenceries and Enamels of Longwy, founded in 1798, is a company located in Lorraine, north of the department of Meurthe-et-Moselle and the borders of Belgium and Luxembourg.
Longwy enamel know-how is listed on the Inventory of Intangible Cultural Heritage in France.
Charles Regnier is at the origin of the foundation of Longwy's Faïenceries. He sets up the factory in a former Carmelite convent that became national. Production is limited to classic pieces such as table services.
The Emperor Napoleon I er, returning from his visit of the fortifications of Vauban around uptown Longwy, control table services for home education of the Legion of Honor.
Towards 1814-1815 production stops because of economic difficulties due mainly to the Napoleonic wars and the siege of the city by the Prussians. Before a partial restart of the activity, Charles Regnier decided to sell his company in 1816 which will be acquired by Jean-Antoine de Nothomb, former colonel of a regiment of cuirassiers, married to Marie-Catherine Boch which is the daughter of Pierre- Joseph Boch. This one being the owner of the faïenceries of Audun-le-Tiche and Septfontaines .
His daughter Marie-Catherine Nothomb, is the wife (1832) of Henri-Joseph d'Huart, Belgian baron, who will logically take the head of the factory left as an inheritance to his wife. Inventive and enterprising, it improves the manufacturing techniques and modernizes the company and the workshops with the use of coke ovens. He innovates a new glaze and adopts the techniques of printing on faience. This period will be abundant in awards and honorary medals on the occasion of numerous exhibitions in Paris and in the provinces. In 1866 he transferred the company to his two sons Fernand and Hippolyte.
