- Text from J. Rudoe, 'Decorative Arts 1850-1950', revised ed. 1994, no. 378:
Dalpayrat established his stoneware factory in 1889, together with the sculptor Alphonse Voisin-Delacroix. From 1892, he produced copper-red glazes. French artist potters were among the first to experiment with copper-red glazes inspired by Chinese ceramics; stonewares with copper-red glazes were shown to great acclaim by Auguste Delaherche at the Paris Exhibition of 1889.
There is no monograph on Dalpayrat; for biographical details, see Cologne 1974, Kunstgewerbemuseum, 'Französische Keramik zwischen 1850 und 1910 (Sammlung Maria und Hans-Jörgen Heuser, Hamburg)', Munich, 150-51 and 'Du second Empire à l'Art Nouveau. la Création Céramique dans les Musées du Nord-pas-de-Calais', exhibition catalogue, Saint-Amand-les-Eaux, published Lille, 1986, 60
