Jean ROSEN - La Manufacture de Meillonnas (Ain). Etude d'une fabrique de céramique régionale (1760-1870), (préf. L. Bergeron), 2000, 202 p., 103 fig., 8 pl. coul. h.t. (ISBN: 2-907303-30-9)
The ceramic earthenware vessels manufactured at Meillonnas supplied a rich and varied group of ceramics to the Lyon region and the Dauphiné, from the middle of the 18th to the end of the 19th century. By using all the available sources (historical documents, archaeology, physical-chemical analysis) this book traces the history of the factory and its craftsmen.

This study provides a comprehensive understanding of the manufacturing techniques and the decoration of these vessels, and will interest historians, archaeologists and museum curators.
A detailed study of the establishment of the factory, its successive owners and the craftsmen who worked there helps to provide a comprehensive understanding of the history of the site. Favourable archaeological and historical evidence, such as account books, signatures, trial vessels and discarded pottery, helps to provide information on all the stages of manufacture. At the interface between archaeology and history, Jean Rosen's study penetrates right to the heart of the production of these ceramics and the community that manufactured them.
