HR Quimper Traditional Cider Cup Ca. 1905

Traditional Cider Cup

3-3/4" diameter, 1-3/8" high, 4-1/2" across handle. Ca. 1905, with early signature under the handle, and in excellent condition. There is a thin blob of old glaze that runs down the front from the handle, left, in a triangle shape into the innermost circle: this is original to the piece and in no way affects its appearance or utility. Cider? Perhaps! But perfect for a small nut or candy dish.

$65 plus $10 shipping.

HB Bac à Lavement Ca. 1880

Bac à Lavement

8-5/8" high, 10" across handles, 5-1/2" total depth, including lion's spout. A vessel for washing, so discreetly described by the French term, a useful sanitary piece made in the 19th century. A great rarity, we show one in our book, Collecting Quimper, on p. 73. The one we are offering here is from the same factory, HB, same period, ca. 1880, and is totally original, including the spout, so often missing.

$1200, shipping $40.

Saumur Wine Jug

Saumur Wine Jug

5-3/4" high, 4-3/4" long, 4" across to tip of spout. From Saumur, the famous wine-growing center of the Loire valley, comes this little charmer. Possibly commissioned by a wine merchant (white or red!) as a petit cadeau for favored clients, we think it was probably intended to be decorative rather than for serious use (though it fills and pours nicely). Barrel-shaped pieces are always highly desirable...this is France, after all...and this one has great presence. Modest conservation measures, indicated by the three red dots, and good age, though we cannot give a specific factory attribution.

$125, shipping $20.

HB Quimper Crêpes Serving Dish ca, 1905

Crêpes Serving Dish

8-1/2" long, 5-1/2" across, 3-1/8" high at tops of ruffled edges. Imagine this piece flattened out: it is exactly the shape a crêpe would be! So roll them up, pile them in, and serve in this delectable dish. Just a bit of glaze wear along the tops of the blue ruffles, consistent with its age, ca. 1905, and general usefulness. This is a very rare form and would be a treasure in anyone's kitchen.

$165, shipping $25.

HenRiot Quimper Jarre à Tabac

Jarre à Tabac

7-1/2" high to top of finial on lid, 5-1/2" diameter. We don't do tabac anymore, but this is still a handsome storage jar and a great size for flower arrangements! Inky blue spray of flowers sends a positive note; this is a piece with many possibilities. Modest conservation to the lid and a minor chip at the very bottom of the TABAC in no way limit its usefulness...it would be a handsome addition to a blue-and-white scheme.

$175, shipping $35.
