Gien collectionI wish to have a piece valued.
We are not in a position to provide you with the estimate for the pieces by taking into account their age. For this purpose we generally advice contacting a sales room or a Faience-earthenware expert.
I wish to get an old piece restored.
We do not have a restoration department at Faiencerie. We can, on request, send you a list of Faience-earthenware restorers in the Loiret or the Parisian region.
I have a service which is no longer in the catalogue, how can I complete it?
Every year, Faiencerie de Gien proposes several new designs and others are deleted. The lifecycle is on an average of three to five years for the modern designs and more for classic or traditional designs.
For designs that are no longer a part of the collection, we do not have any stock of designs out of collection since more than five years. For the other designs consult us or check at the flea market or the sales sites between individuals.
Use and maintenanceIs Gien Faience-earthenware dishwasher-proof?
You can clean your Faiencerie de Gien pieces in the dishwasher, but please monitor the doses of detergent and rinsing liquid and the manufacturer’s washing instructions. Give preference to « eco » or low temperature programs to avoid thermal shocks and preserve your pieces.
The hand-painted pieces of the Gien prestige collections result from a different manufacturing mode and are not dishwasher-proof.
Can the Gien Faience-earthenware pieces be used in the microwave oven?
One must avoid placing Faience-earthenware in the microwave oven; their action mechanically wears out the glazing which more or less ends up cracking. This is not a disadvantage, but attention and care must be provided to this ceramic material so that it preserves its prettiest effects as long as possible.
You can eventually use your pieces in a microwave oven for low reheating, but never for defreezing or cooking.
Faiencerie de Gien proposes a range of culinary dishes matching with the design of its collection adapted for the use of traditional oven (t° max. 250°C) and the microwave oven. These stoneware dishes allow associating the pleasure of the art of cooking with the art of entertaining.
Can the Gien Faience-earthenware pieces be used in the conventional oven?
The use of the conventional oven can cause thermal shock and damage the glaze of the pieces in an irreversible manner.
