Amongst the many faience manufacturers in the 19th century, the reputation of the Gien manufacturers is equal to those of the factories of Creil-Monterau, Longwy, Sarreguemines or Bordeaux.

The faience manufacturers in Gien fully grasped the art of imitation and produced copies of old objects at a reasonable price. Moreover, employing talented ornamental painters, unique pieces were created. They applied both new decorations and decorations inspired by those from previous centuries, inspired by other European manufacturers or from those originating from the Far East.

In 1821 Thomas Edme Hulm, also called "Hall", wound up his factory in Montereau which had been run by his family since 1774 and bought the ground and buildings of the old convent of Minimes to start a new factory where he started producing faience using the English method.

At first he aimed at producing crockery, later he started producing dinner services, decorative pieces and dinner services embellished with family arms. The production of oil lamps was another typical specialty of Gien. The faience manufacturers of Gien have further developed the technique of emaux cloisonn, which originates from Longwy, in 1870.

    Ik ben tevreden over de vlotte bezorging en mooie hanger.
    De verzendkosten waren € 5,70 . Ik betaalde echter € 34. Is wel een heel groot verschil. Alhoewel het wel aangegeven stond bij het kavel.

    The pendant arrived in time and good order. Shipping costs to be paid (30 euro) out of proportion with the real shipping costs paid (5,80 euro). Catawi is an auction and not a profit postage machine

    Er waren problemen met de levering, maar die waren te wijten aan het postbedrijf en niet aan de verkoper en de communicatie met hem erover was uitstekend. Zeer positief, dus.

    Leuke hangers. Goed verpakt. Hangers zaten in een pakje, wel twee keer verzendkosten betaald.
    Het is de verkoper gegund, de opbrengst was anders wel erg laag.

  • The pen had a broken ink delivery system and a cartridge or converter could not be installed. So how could a fountain pen be used without ink??

    michaelobrien July 3, 2019

    Response by seller
    Sorry - But I just give up - pen exactly as described in working order - no converter as shown in the listing but useable with appropriate Dunhill cartridge. The buyer has NEVER contacted me but now almost TWO MONTHS after delivery the buyer just posts unwarranted negative feedback - Am I annoyed - Yes but it is what it is.

    Die Portokosten (34,-€) sind so hoch wie der Ersteigerungspreis.
    Die Sendung wog 98 Gramm, das Porto der Post 9,70 €-
    Ich fühle mich betrogen, was werden Sie dagegen tun??
    Das ist kein Einzelfall !

    Response by seller
    WIth the greatest respect - you were charged exactly what was quoted as shipping, packing and insurance BEFORE you bid. Once again no issues with the items purchased but after purchase wants a discount. I am sorry but I pay a shipping service to ship all my items - that is the only way I can operate - I clearly show the total all in shipping cost - you saw it before you bid. Enjoy the fine silver pieces that you purchased at a deep discount to the market price. Thanks
