Lit: Those rare and elegant pieces were made by Frédéric Faber and Charles Christophe Windish when they associated their know-hows and created the Manufactory of XL I in 1824. Windish was fantastic creator and drawer of porcelain models. From French origins, he already had worked with the best Parisian manufactories. Their collaboration stopped at the Belgian Independence in 1830.
