A bit of the history for the Alfred Hache & Cie. Mark, in use from 1889, some in green or Brown with "H & PL/V" or AH & Cie. Was located in Vierzon on the Cher River and in the department of the same name. Successors to the firm of Petry & Ronsse (which itself could be traced back to the early days of the Restauration), the company was founded in 1845 by brothers-in-law Adolphe Hache and Leon Pepin-Lehalleur.The new industrialized manufacturing techniques introduced by Hache & Pepin-Lehalleur - coupled with the region's rich supplies of clay and firewood - established Vierzon as a major porcelain manufacturing center of France, which it would remain until the French economic crises of the 1970's. Pepin-Lehalleur retired in 1872, succeeded in the firm by his sons, after which the firm was known as Hache & Lehalleur fils. Following Adolphe Hache's retirement in 1885, he was succeeded by his son and son-in-law as Alfred Hache, Jullien & Cie. Known from 1893 simply as A. These companies received numerous exhibition awards, including silver medals in Paris in 1858 and 1867, a prize medal in London in 1862, gold medals in Paris in 1867 and 1878, diplomas of honor in Vienna in 1872 and Paris in 1889.
