Faience is a style of pale, tin-glazed pottery with a fine, and often floral, decoration. A well-know source of Faience pottery in Provence is created in the village of Moustiers-Saint-Marie.

Our current style of Faience pottery originated with French speaker in Italy, but the history of the style goes back to pre-ninth-centure Middle East, or possibly to Egypt some 50 centuries earlier.
