Gien Foret Vierge - Hand Painted
Gien Foret Vierge
Inspired by the Tamarin pattern this is a re-issue of a version dating back to 1888.
It is an artistic depiction of 19th century abundance, portrayed with a touch of humor, a nod in the direction of great expeditions of the day, with a strong sense of the exotic and the lavish.
Details in the pattern show prickly pears and lush tree ferns .
Plant and animal life come alive on each piece, on each shape.
The Faïencerie de Gien reissues unique pieces, entirely hand-painted in XVIIIth century tradition.
These collections are numbered and limited to a few copies signed by the painter.
Genuine works of art, they are sold with a certificate of authenticity.
All the manufacturing stages are undertaken in Gien, a town situated on the banks of the river Loire, the royal river, between Orléans & Nevers. The art of fine Faience is the result of a subtle alchemy.
The blending of rare clays, casting of the pieces, shaping, brushing, kiln firing, decorating,glazing and finally sorting, are all carried out by hand in accordance with two centuries of know-how, to offer you an exceptional piece.
This quest for excellence combined with creativity, quality, and innovation, makes Gien one of the most emblematic French signatures in Decorative Arts.
