About W.M. Guerin: William (Guillaume) Guérin founded his porcelain factory in 1872 when he bought the porcelain workshop of Lebon & Cie, and just five years later the porcelain factory located in Limoges.
When Guérin died in 1912, his two sons took over the company and merged it with Pout creating J.Pouyat, William Guérin et Cie. The factory closed in 1932 due to growing competition and the 1929 financial crisis. Sadly, the factories archives and thousands of molds and models were destroyed.
