The Cappellemans' brothers, already manufacturers in Halle, decide in 1849 to take over the Brussels' manufactory of Faber. The success is immediate and soon the Royal Palace orders tableware to complete the service with the birds of Buffon, delivered 30 years earlier by Faber himself. Mainly active in tableware, although some figures and statues must be mentioned as they are of high quality.
