Founded in 1821, Le faïencerie de Gien is renowned for its stunning earthenware artistry executed by the finest craftsmen at the Gien Faïence factory in Loire Valley, France. Bestowed with an exceptional heritage, it perpetuates a legacy of fine faience and creates designs drawing on timeless and contemporary inspiration and shapes.
For more than 190 years, Gien has produced a wide variety of items including services decorated with monograms and coats of arms of over 2,600 royal and noble European families. Gien is highly unique with rich styles, refined and varied shapes and a stunning array of vivacious colors. Today, the factory creates contemporary dinnerware and giftware as well as art Faïence pieces. The art Faïence pieces in keeping with the 19th century tradition are modeled by hand and decorated with deigns transferred from copper plates from the Gien archives. The pieces are then painted by artistic hands resulting in a true work of art.
