"The vast majority of French nineteenth century porcelains, commonly called "Old Paris" are not authored. The workshop of Jacob Petit was one of the most important and well-known porcelain factories in France, and became one of the major producers of Rococo ornamental ware during the 1830s. Born in Paris in 1796, as Jacob Mardouch, he qualified as a porcelain manufacturer in 1820 and traveled widely. In 1830-1831, Jacob Petit published an important interior design collection, which included designs for vases, furniture, chairs, silver and bronze objects, all heavily influent by classical, Rococo and Gothic styles. He was highly successful in business as well, and his designs were appreciated by such luminaries as Louis XVIII, Charles X and the duchess of Berry. His highly decorative porcelain was enormously popular in both England and France and has proven to be well-made and designed to endure the test of time. At the 1834 Paris Exhibition, he was praised for his genius for inventing numerous and varied new forms, revolutionizing the manufacture of porcelain. His work inspired imitators throughout Europe and his name was even given to a Rococo Revival style"
