Manufactory of Ixelles, Frédéric Faber in Brussels

Lit: Frédéric Faber and Charles Christophe Windish associated their know-hows and created the Manufactory of XL I in 1824. Windish was fantastic creator and drawer of porcelain models. Faber was a genius painter on porcelain. Their collaboration will enable Brussels to compete with the best manufacturers in Europe. Nevertheless, their roads separated at Belgian independence around 1830. Faber's son, Henri, will take over the manufacture and work in the spirit of this father.
