HB Quimper Covered Bucket Old Yellow (J) - SOLD

#101-0587, 0588:
Covered Bucket, 4 ½” high, 5” diameter across lid. Still with its original wicker handle, a tidy little server for ice cubes, or nuts, or….whatevers. This is an excellent example of the way the very traditional décor was modernized for this period in these colors. S: HB Quimper France N.S.& S….
The initials, no doubt, the American store where this was to be sold. In perfect condition.

It must be noted that the camera did not take kindly to the yellow backgrounds, making some look much paler than they really are… think “Butter” and “Sunshine”!

$135, Shipping: $30

The yellow glazes were first used after the end of World War I, a time of great artistic experimentation at the Quimper faienceries. As the American market developed and fell in love with these colors, so did the variety of designs chosen …many of them trials, with a very brief run, some highly successful and continued for a long time. This collection comes from a well-known American dealer/collector, and exemplifies the range of choices that were once available with these glazes.
