early 17th century. The source of this word comes from the expression "vaisselle de fayence" derived from Italian city Faenza was shortened to the single word "fayence".

The success of Nevers faiences led to establishing new production centers in other French cities. 18th century was a golden era for faience production. Economic problems caused by the French Revolution and growing porcelain production ended French faience expanssion.
