VASE 4075-1901 'American and European Art and Design 1800-1900' Ziegler was very much an academic among factory owners. Born in 1804, he studied stoneware-making in Germany; he was a painter, curator of the museum at Dijon, and author of a book on the principles of beauty in ceramics, architecture and forms in general. He founded his factory near Beauvais in 1839, and made dark stoneware in archaic shapes and decorated with relief ornament. His products were rewarded with numerous medals.
