Vintage Quimper Covered Serving Dish

Vintage Quimper Covered Serving Dish

$150.00

Quimper pottery (pronounced kem-pair) began in Brittany, France in the early 1700s. The pottery takes it name from the town of Quimper, where potter Jean-Baptiste Bousquet built his kilns and began producing his hand-painted wares. The pottery's designs reflect the strong Breton influence of that region. Perhaps the most famous design that is typical of Quimper pottery is the "petit breton" or "petite bretonne", a naive painting of a Breton man or woman in the traditional costume of Brittany.

Entirely hand-painted by the Grande Maison de la Hubaudière, (abbreviated HB) this Vintage Covered Serving Dish has all the charming hallmarks of classic Quimper.  In traditional Quimper style, the dish features a "petite bretonne" on its lid and a "petit breton" on its side.  Colorful floral sprays and traditional patterns complete the whimsical scene.

With roots dating to the birth of Quimper pottery, the Grande Maison de la Hubaudière began when Jean-Baptiste Bousquet's son Pierre went into business with members of his extended family, the De La Hubaudieres and formed Hubaudière-Bousquet. Their wares were marked with the now famous “HB” mark.

This charming covered serving dish, rich with history and joie de vivre, is sure to be a beloved addition to any Quimper collection.

In very good vintage condition with minimal signs of age and use including two small discreet spots of missing glaze on the lid's knob.
