J.L Coquet – Jaune de Chrome
The J.L. Coquet et Jaune de Chrome manufactory, based in Saint-Léonard de Noblat, a few kilometres from Limoges (Haute Vienne - France), has been creating and manufacturing since 1824 a purest porcelain, combining originality of form, fine engraving and quality of products. Rich in exceptional know-how, JL Coquet et Jaune de Chrome implements the entire manufacturing process within their own factory to offer a porcelain entirely made and decorated in Haute-Vienne.
The decoration techniques (strips, nets, gold and platinum installation, metallic backgrounds and chandeliers, enamel work,...) are carried out in a traditional way and exclusively by hand. Our factory has its own silkscreen printing workshop allowing it to produce particular chromos of relief or effect decorations.
JL Coquet et Jaune de Chrome also stands out for the customization and experience it offers its customers, whether they are private or professional, to create unique pieces with them that are adapted to their needs. Our factory has worked with the greatest names in gastronomy such as Yannick Alléno, Alain Ducasse, Guy Savoy and Pierre Gagnaire.
A mark of recognition, JL Coquet and Jaune de Chrome are holders of the "Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant" label, which promotes French companies with excellent know-how and the "Porcelaine de Limoges" protected geographical indication (PGI).
J.L. Coquet offers guided tours in the summer as part of the regional campaign to organise tours of companies belonging to the Limousin CCI (Chamber of Commerce and Industry).

JL Coquet et Jaune de Chrome creates a unique porcelain. Ancestral manual skills are combined with cutting-edge technical research to create original and innovative forms that are never indifferent. J.L Coquet Porcelain is distinguished by its whiteness, of which it has been the symbol for many years. It is thus recognized as one of the whitest, most translucent and delicate in the world.
Jaune de Chrome stands out for its remarkable know-how, which consists in meticulously applying an alloy of enamels and metallic components to porcelain for a most surprising material effect. This technique requires great skill and a long training period so that each of our craftsmen can ensure a perfect mastery of the decorations. Even if the gesture is irreproachable, the process remains traditional. Each piece thus has a unique dimension, with slight variations in the decoration during firing.
