HANDLED TRAY

7-1/4" x 5-3/4" x 3" to top of arched handle. A piece of history, commemorated by the Porquier Beau factory, ca. 1890: the coming of the chemins de fer to Brittany. So eat your grapes, then pass the tray around (like a jumbo picture postcard!), to admire the scene in all its colorful detail. Minor conservation, as noted by our restorer's three red dots, now in lovely display and useful condition (for fruits, cookies, anything cold or room temperature...and wash gently by hand!).

$495, plus shipping.

CREPES PRESENTOIR

8" long, 5-3/4" wide, 3 1/4" high at midpoint of fluted sides. A charming concept, mimicking the very form of a crêpe! Folded or rolled, pile this dish high with delectable buttery crêpes (or whatever your menu calls for)! Pretty fluted sides are further embellished with ermine tails and appliqued bows. Ca. 1905, it has very modest rim wear that will not affect its usefulness: just hand-wash with care! 

$135, plus shipping.

AP FOOTED PRESENTOIR

7-1/2" square, the corners curling up to 1-1/4", with tiny feet adding even more distinction to this little serving tray. From the AP factory, ca. 1880, it is in perfect original condition. The faint craquelure effect is actually painted under the glaze, and it is ready for another century of careful use.

$145, plus shipping.

DOUBLE SERVER

14" x 9" x 2" deep  to 5" to top of curving handle. Scallops and ruffles, the potter's clever way to enhance the portait cartouches in each segment of this elegant server. Ca. 1910, this had major restoration many years ago, now presents beautifully on table or server (for fruits, cookies, anything cold or room temperature...and wash gently by hand!). Save for very special occasions! 

$125, plus shipping.

ROOSTER TRIO

The markings on these three little creamers are an interesting indication of the transitional moment in 1968, when the merged factories changed their signatures from one stamped mark to another. However, the three pieces have the same painter's mark and are from the same production period. 3-3/4", 3-1/4", 2-5/8"...a graduated set, a true Quimper classic. The rims, particularly on the smallest, show some wear and glaze rubs, but they have years of useful life still!

$125 the trio, plus shipping.

SMALL RAVIER

8-3/8" x 6",  1" depth.  When the strawberries are gone, this charming bouquet will remain to grace your table. A rare design from the de la Hubaudière factory, ca. 1880. Note that wonderful HB signature, signed with a proud flourish! Had a modest conservation measure, as noted by our restorer's three red dots, now in excellent useful condition (fruits, cookies, anything cold or room temperature...and wash gently by hand!).

$110, plus shipping.

PORQUIER BEAU SHELL SERVER

8-3/4" long, 3-3/4" wide. Salted nuts, chocolate truffles, butter and jam, so many ways to use this dear little dish!  It has our restorer's three red dots on the back but may well be used for light serving; just hand wash, please! From the Porquier Beau production of the late 19th century using the classical Rouen corne d'abondance very effectively on each of the little shells.

$110, plus shipping.
