QUIMPER PALETTE

9-1/2" high, 7-1/4 across. Adorable young Breton couple, colorfully attired, and wreathed in matching floral sprays. Ca. 1890, it is a perfect wall pocket to hang near a desk and tuck in notes or mail. Certainly one of the more unusual and eye-catching forms from this factory. Modest conservation has been done to bring this back to perfection: hang it, use it, enjoy it!

$425, plus shipping.

PAIR OF QUIMPER PITCHERS

6-3/8" tall, 5-3/8" across to handle, 3" base diameter. Everything about these - the figures, the flower sprays, the fondant-like glaze, the well-balanced form - speaks to tradition at its best. The unglazed bottoms have an embossed 2, as well as our conservator's three red dots....they are now in beautiful, useful shape. The factory signature: HR Quimper, is under the handles, indicating the turn-of-the century period. Difficult enough to find one good pitcher, remarkable to find a pair!

$175, plus shipping.

PAIR OF FIGURAL CANDLESTICKS

8-1/2" high, on bases approximately 2-1/2" square. Traditional Breton figures, nicely modelled, softly painted. This charming pair became so popular that they were re-issued at the end of the 20th century. But this pair is particularly distinguished by the HR Quimper signature on the bases (rear) as being among the earliest part of this production, ca. 1920. They needed modest cosmetic repair on several very small chips and are now in fine show-off shape. Indeed, standing with a group of plates, they seem to bring the plates to life!

$650 the pair, plus shipping.

PORQUIER BEAU POTPOURRI JAR

8-3/4" high. 9" across the handles, on a 4-1/4" footed base. A deliciously plump jar stands ready for your rose petals or lavender, the proud bee-and-flower-topped lid delicately pierced to allow the air to circulate, the yummy smells to come wafting out. A very old shape, decorated in a very old Rouen-inspired decor. Our restorer took care of problems with the body of the piece, and it is now in perfect condition, as was the lid. No signature, but the glaze and quality are most assuredly from the Porquier Beau production, ca. 1870.

$425, plus shipping.

PORQUIER BEAU FOLDED PLATTER

12" long, 10" from top to bottom of the diamond-shaped points. The unusual shaping of the clay gives rise to intriguing ways to show off the artist's creativity: floral sprays grace the outside folds, held in place with décor riche bands, the whole effect guaranteed to highlight the scene within. A practical serving dish: pile it high with Christmas bonbons; then what fun to reach the interior scene! First period Porquier Beau, signed on the bottom and in perfect condition for display and use.

$550 the pair, plus shipping.

LARGE QUIMPER DUCK

Large size: 11" high, 8-1/4" across to tail, base diameter 4-5/8". He stands tall and firm, beautifully painted, and ready to be filled with anything from sauces to sweets. He was a creation of the delaHubaudiere (HB) factory in the late 19th century, with the additional notation: "Grande Maison"
inscribed on the pedestal front. Modest cosmetic repair, now in perfect usable condition. (Just handwash, please!)

$525, plus shipping.

GEOMETRIC QUIMPER SNUFF

2-3/4" wavy diameter, with another 1/2" for the neck.Two beautiful patterns, hand- painted with careful precision... that's a little white glaze splash on one side, inherent in the manufacture, so we do not change it. Clearly 19th century, no signature, probably from the AP production of that time.

$325, plus shipping.

HANDSOME BLAZONS

5-1/8" long, 4-1/4" across for "Quimper", a shade longer, but slightly thinner, for "Bretagne". Unsigned, but clearly from the AP production, ca. 1870. They are deeply embossed and richly painted, the quality one expects from that factory. Pierced for hanging, eye-catching wherever they are hung.

"Bretagne" $265, plus shipping.

"Quimper" $295, plus shipping.

$525 the pair, plus shipping.

DESVRES PIPE RACK

11-1/4" across, 9-1/4" high, 1-1/2" deep from wall. An exquisite piece, from the embossed blazon at the top, to the lovely little vignette of the Breton couple under the rack. Created sometime in the last 50 years, it is in perfect original condition. The colors and the swirling pattern above the rack incline us to think this came from Desvres, though not marked in any way.

$250, plus shipping.

MALICORNE BASKET

12" long, 8" high, 5-1/4" across. A stunning concept: two-tones and basket-weave detail, both inside the basket and out, make it a versatile piece for decorating or serving. An unusual PB for Malicorne, suggesting it is possibly a one-of-a-kind, ca. 1900. Modest conservation measures, marked with our restorer's three red dots, signal limited use and careful handwashing. Fruits, cookies, even little potted plants, all will do just fine!

$195, plus shipping.

QUIMPER TREFOIL SERVER

7-1/2" x 7-1/2" x 4" to top of handle. A delightful little dish, its three wells deep enough to handle chutney, relish, pickles, whatever! With a good sturdy handle to make passing it an easy chore. One little horn player, 2 clusters of flowers, shell scalloping along the rims: it has all the details and charm of the early 20th century. S: HB Quimper, in fine original condition, ready for careful (just handwash, please) daily use!

$110, plus shipping.
