References to marks will employ the accepted numbering systems used by both Ms. Gaston and Ms. DuBay.
Tressemann (Tressemanes) & Vogt Co. was formed in 1882 as a decorating company and exporter for fine Limoges porcelain. John Vogt (1815-1906) was born in Germany to a family of porcelain and glass retailers, and in 1840, at the tender age of 25, he opened an import house in New York, then an office in Limoges (latter 1850s) from which he soon began decorating porcelain for export ca. 1860. Johns son Charles Vogt and his nephew Frederic Dose joined the New York Company in 1865 and traded as Vogt & Dose, which also had a decorating studio in New York. At Charles Vogts passing in 1886, Dose assumed command, then was shortly succeed by second son, Gustave Vogt (1849-1937), who had taken over the Limoges branch in 1870, and whose son Charly came to managed the New York operations. Needing capital for expansion, Gustave took Emilien Tressemanes as a partner in 1891, and in the same year, bought two small porcelain factories in Faubourg Montjovis (Limoges) that had excelled at making very high quality white ware for export to the USA. The partnership lasted until 1907, when Tressemann retired, and Gustave Vogt became sole owner changing the name to Porcelaine Gustave Vogt. The reputation of the Tressemann & Vogt porcelain was so renowned, that in late 1891, the company was commissioned to produce a custom dinner service for U.S. President Benjamin Harrison. In 1919 Martial Reynaud bought the company and continued using the T&V mark as well as his own Reynaud mark. Reynaud porcelain remains in business today.
