Marc- Louis-Emmanuel Solon (1835-1913) was a French porcelain artist, who moved from the Sèvres Pottery to Stoke on Trent in 1870, as a consequence of the Franco-Prussian war. He spent the rest of his life in England, working at Mintons, where he became the leading specialist in the pâte-sur-pâte technique. He collected English pottery while in Stoke and this title, first published in 1883, is a result of his research.
