Faience is a fine, porous earthenware which is tin-glazed and then fired repeatedly. The faience dinner services from Gien have been popular for their intensive colours and shapes for hundred of years.
The "Azur" dinner service from Gien resembles a delicate watercolour drawing and whisks you off on a trip into the unspoilt countryside. The wonderful illustrations show blue wild flowers, whose fragrance attracts colourful butterflies. The wild flowers, such as cornflowers and forget-me-nots are presented true to life on the cream-coloured Gien faience.
