 About Blois Faïence

 

As part of the Château des Bois Collection, M. Markley Antiques features items made at the ceramic works at Blois and Gien.  While Blois went out of existence more than half a century ago, Gien is still going strong and making some of the Renaissance style items we prize so highly.  For more information, click on the links above.  Go to our Stylistic Origins page for more information on Gothic and Renaissance styles.
