It is reputed that a porcelain factory was founded in Choisy-Le-Roy, by Monsieur Clément, in 1786.
This particular crossed swords mark was used from 1786 until 1886 when an official complaint by Meissen - which mark of the crossed swords is one of the oldest trademarks in existence - forbid Choisy-Le-Roy from using the crossed swords mark.
