In 1847 the eldest son of manufacturer Cappellemans, J.B. Cappellemans, along with Fauvel, Willems and Picard, founded a factory in Jemappes Wallonia. The word "aine" in the factory mark means theeldest son. The company co-operated with English faience producer William Smith. The name Smith appears on some marks of the company.
The factory products were very English in style. The company went bankrupt in 1870. Its assets were taken over by Jacques Cassel. The new company operated until 1894.
