About the trade show

Exhibition of Ceramics Castellet at the community hall.

In the eighteenth century Castellet became famous for its pottery. When the Sun King had need of gold and silver to finance the War of Spanish Succession, he recovered the dishes of his nobility. It is then that the young potter Caesar Mill, arriving in Apt, decided to settle in Castellet his uncle the Prior Claude Moulin.

At the request of Claude Louis Hector de Villars, Duke of Brancas, lord, the young man created in 1714, the first pottery Pays d'Apt. Caesar began by molding workers Piedmont silverware of the Duke and diversifying its business by making masterpieces: statues depicting scenes of shepherds, hunting and fishing sites and animated landscapes, etc.. Thanks to Duke its production becomes the toast of Versailles, the Court threw himself on his dishes, plates, chocolate, coffee and dessert, urns and fountains.

On site, some neighboring lords - and jealous - also create their own pottery by poaching workers from Caesar and even members of his family. Challenged, the factory Castellet, thanks to the quality of its production, continues to dominate the market for over a century since it closed its doors in 1852.

Courtet Jules, who visited, wrote: "It makes pottery yellow, brown and mottled with a throughput considerably." Outside the Museum of Apt, these pieces are on display at the Museum of Arbaud Aix-en-Provence and in the collection to the museum Carnot Francois de Grasse.
