Pont aux Choux Blanc - Cake Dish
In 1819, Faïencerie de Gien acquired La Manufacture de Pont-aux-Choux and its iconic "grain of rice" dinner service. The Manufacture de Pont-aux-Choux was created in 1748 in Paris and built on former ditches that had become market gardens, where cabbages were grown. Access to these crops was via a bridge, hence the name Pont-aux-Choux.
An exceptional manufacture thanks to its unique and bicentenary know-how, Faïencerie de Gien masters all the stages of the manufacturing process, from the heap of earth to the finished product. A Gien piece requires 26 components and passes through the hands of 30 "master earthenware makers".
