Quimper Adorable Pair - HenRiot Quimper - Late 1930's

An Adorable Pair

3-7/8" square, an inspired use of geometric motifs to frame our traditional sujets ordinaires. Yes, they were intended as ashtrays (designed at the height of the smoking craze in the 1930s); we can see them used for spoon rests, nuts or candy, hand soaps, desk minutiae...and so on. (Wish there were more!) In excellent condition, one tiny fleck of glaze missing at upper left side of M'sieu, faint glaze rub at his upper-right corner. They are very solid and quite ready for years of active use.

$125 the pair, plus shipping (contact us for shipping cost)
