one of the most successful and less common tharaud models.
Camille Tharaud studied at the Gay-Lussac high school in Limoges and at the upper school in Bellac1. Her favorite subject is chemistry3. During his studies he met Francis Chigot who influenced his choice for porcelain1. Mobilized during the First World War, at the age of 36, he was seriously injured in the head. Evacuated to Paris, he obtained convalescence leave which he spent in Limoges. It was at this time that he had the opportunity to work with porcelain1. His first experiments took place in the former Louis Tharaud factory, a namesake with which he was not related1. After several months of rental, he acquired, on January 29, 19201, this factory founded in 1854 but abandoned for 35 years, located rue du Calvaire and boulevard des Petits-Carmes in Limoges1. From then on, he began renovating and changed the old-fashioned, direct-flame oven for a reverse-flame oven1. His first research directed towards colored pastes, started in 1915 during his convalescence4, would lead him to lead to decoration by colored enamels. Instead of coloring a thin layer of paste or painting on an already hardened enamel, Camille Tharaud succeeded in coloring the enamel in its thickness. From 1920 to 1923, he went through a period of hard testing and the company struggled to resist. The color palette is still reduced, the first pieces are small, the sets timidly composed ... His experiences almost led to disaster, at the beginning of 1924 he was close to bankruptcy1. With the help of the banks he continued his activity and, finally, he was successful.
