Gien inspired by fairytales

French luxury brand Faiencerie de Gien presents the new Lucien Colleciton inspired by a Brothers' Grimm tale

Taking inspiration from fairytales is the astonishing Lucien collection from the Faïencerie de Gien.

This is the first pattern created by young artist Lucien Murat and introduces a fairytale world where the imaginary world combines characters, eras and situations.

Inspired by the Brothers' Grimm tale The Town Musicians of Bremen, the designer brings together some zany characters, including a dinosaur, gnome, duck, robot, unicorn, and more.

For the edging, Lucien Marat took on and reworked the Carnavalet theme created in 1875 by the china manufacturer for the Parisian museum of the same name.

The Lucien collection is completely in the spirit of today and corresponds to the Faïencerie's image and values: "Gien is fun and has a sense of humour". The pattern will delight trendy urban consumers, young and old alike.

The collection includes many items: packs of 2 or 4 plates, mugs, candy jars, tea caddies, bowls, serving dishes, egg cups, coasters and more.
