A putto is a figure in a work of art depicted as a chubby male child, usually naked and sometimes winged. Originally limited to profane passions in symbolism, the putto came to represent the sacred cherub, and in Baroque art the putto came to represent the omnipresence of God.

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.
