The Casseaux Kiln, Royal Lamoges, FR Inserted in a granite building and built with iron-bound refractory tiles, the Casseaux kiln is cylindric. This design, advocated since the end of 18th century, made it possible to diffuse the heat evenly inside the kiln. There are two levels inside the kiln, related to very different firing stages. It is one of the most eminent traces of the 19th century Limousin industrial heritage and one of the last kilns that can still be viewed in the city.

Four des Casseaux, Limoge, FR This kiln is 19,5 metres (64 ft) high and has a 5,5 metre (18 ft) diameter. It was built in 1884 for the Allaud factory. This round-shaped kiln was designed for firing porcelain, using the Milton system, also known as the inverted flame system. Wood was used at first, then charcoal. The Casseaux kiln is the only kiln open to visitors, out of the 130 kilns originally built in Limoges.
