Gien china has been creating rich and luxurious dinnerware in Gien, France since 1821. Each piece of dinnerware and home decoration is made of "faience" or fine English earthenware. The products made are highly esteemed now and in the past. Gien commonly created dinner services for aristocrats and royalty throughout Europe and continues to find its way onto some of the most exquisite tables in Europe and the Americas.
Why is Gien so esteemed? The use of rich and charming coloration, the use of fine materials, the fact each piece is uniquely hand made and hand painted, and the beautiful array of sizes and shapes of their dinnerware services makes Gien a sought out high-end brand.
Also, Gien is very fussy about quality. An ordinary dinner plate (if you can call any of Gien's products "ordinary") and museum-quality vase receive the same scrutiny and quality control. You are assured every piece of Gien is examined by hand at all stages of production from biscuit to enameling through decoration. Gien guarantees the best possible dinnerware with no compromises.
Caring for Gien china services is easy. Each piece is dishwasher safe. We tell our customers to wash on the lowest heat setting and use the air dry mode. Gien may be used in the microwave for reheating foods, but should not be used to cook or thaw items there. Do not use service pieces in the oven.
