On each plate, 6 separated parts to put the different aliments from the "fondue", sevral cheeses, potatoes, ham and delicatessen, etc. ... In an excellent condition. The Gien Faïencerie is first established in 1821 in Gien in the Loire Valley, at the heart of France. Its history goes back two hundred years. Its founder is Thomas Hall, an Englishman eager to promote and expand Fine English faïence in France. Before Gien was founded, Thomas Hall was involved with the Montereau faïencerie. He handed over his interest in the company, to go on to a project to Revive the Pont aux Choux faïencerie in Paris. At the time it is the only faïencerie in the Paris area. It produces sophisticated pieces of faïence with a close resemblance to silverware, inspired by English know-how. He finally settles on the choosing to locate in Gien which had all the assets necessary to make faïence : sand and water from the royal river to make clay paste, and wood from the nearby Sologne forest to stoke the kilns. In addition, the Loire river was the main means of transporting goods, up until the mid-19th century.
