WIKIPEDIA: Samson began his career by making service and set piece replacements in the late 1830s. In 1845 he opened the ceramics firm Samson in Paris, with the intention of supplying reproductions of ceramics on display in museums and private collections. The factory was moved to Montreuil, Seine-Saint-Denis in 1864 by Samson’s son, Emile Samson (1837–1913). The firm either drew inspiration from other factories, or directly copied their pieces. 18th-century designs from the factories of Meissen, Sevres, Chelsea, Worcester and Derby were among the reproductions Samson, Edme et Cie produced, among designs copied from the other major European factories. During the 19th century, the collectors' market for antique fine china was considerable, and Samson’s firm reproduced ceramics in a breadth of styles including the faience and maiolica types of Italian pottery, Persian style dishes, Hispano-Moresque pottery (a blending of Islamic and European motifs, produced during the 13th to 15th centuries), plates in the FitzHugh pattern, as well as plates in the manner associated with Bernard Palissy. The firm exhibited at the International Exposition (1867) and the Exposition Universelle (1889).
