|The Faiencerie de Gien was founded in 1821 by an Englishman from Stoke-on-Trent, Thomas Hall. Mr. Hall wanted to introduce fine English earthenware to the French, also known as “faience” in France. 190 years later, Gien is an integral part of France’s cultural heritage, praised by many around the world.
|All the faience products are 100% made in Gien, France, a small town on the banks of the Loire River. The company is a member of the prestigious Comité Colbert (www.comitecolbert.com), a consortium of the most recognized French luxury names.
