Céralene is a specific type of dinnerware china made by the French company Raynaud & Co. After Martial Raynaud found success as a porcelain salesman in 1911, he later opened a factory of his own in Limoges, France which he named “Porcelaines Raynaud”. The company has since remained quite successful in the china industry and continues to produce extraordinary pieces.
What makes Raynaud’s china so special? The Céralene dishes are made using the infamous Limoges clay. This city is where kaolin clay was discovered at Saint-Yrieix-la-Perche in 1768. Kaolin is a very fine, white clay that is perfect for porcelain, so it was natural that Limoges developed a ceramics industry. Now, ‘Limoges’ is simply a term to reference the type of clay used. Much of France’s ceramic manufacturers use Limoges in their china and other pottery. You’ll know if your Raynaud china is Céralene by the backstamp. It’s signified by a rooster with the name ‘Céralene’. This china is exceptionally uncommon to find, especially since Céralene discontinued patterns are still very popular in both American and European markets.
