Gustave Vogt (1849-1937), took over the Limoges branch by 1870 and partnered with Emilien Tressemanes in the early 1880’s. In 1891 they bought two small porcelain factories in Faubourg Montjovis (Limoges) and made high quality whiteware for export to the USA. The company was commissioned in 1891 to produce a dinner service for President Harrison.
Tressemann retired in 1907 and Gustave Vogt became sole owner and changed the name to Porcelaine Gustave Vogt. 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.
