Literature

Frédéric Gustave Asch (1856-1911) was a French ceramist working in Sainte Radegonde, near Tours. In 1890, he deposited his famous mark featuring an ax. Gustave Asch was well-known especially for his "Bleu de Tours" - a dark blue enamel close to the "Sevres blue", as well as his "Empire green".
