  1. Palissy(adj)

    designating, or of the nature of, a kind of pottery made by Bernard Palissy, in France, in the 16th centry


  1. Palissy

    Palissy is the brand name under which the English firm of A.E. Jones and Sons, of Stoke-on-Trent, marketed their china and pottery. The name was chosen as a tribute to Bernard Palissy, the famous French potter of the 16th century, creator of Palissy ware. The company origins may date back to the 1850s, and be a split from the Jones family, such as George Jones, who produced quite upmarket items through the 1900s.
