Pie dish (ceramic)

Emile Henry

Established 1850

Founded in 1850 by Jacques Henry as a small pottery workshop, Emile Henry is a manufacturer of ceramic bakeware products. In the early days the production was varied: Henry made horticultural pottery as well as glazed pottery for culinary use. In 1882 Paul Henry takes over after his father, and from 1882 to 1894 he moves to Paris.

Designed in 1911 by Paul Henry, the ruffled pie dish was an immediate success. With its smooth lines and attractive shape it became the signature product of the company. In 1922 his son Emile Henry takes over the company and decides to concentrate exclusively on glazed pottery for culinary use.
Today, the company is still family run.
