Cups & saucers all painted & signed by one artist. The tin-glazed handpainted French faience known as Quimper Pottery has been manufactured in Quimper, a town in Brittany, France for over 300 years. The pottery adopted its name from the town of Quimper where potter Jean Baptiste Bousquet built his kilns in the Quimper area of Locmaria in 1685 and was given a royal manufacturing license by King Louis XIV. Although the area of Locmaria in Quimper has been associated with pottery as far back as the Gallo-Roman era, Bousquet is credited with being the founder of Quimper Pottery. His firm was known as HB Quimper.
Each piece of Quimper faience is completely handmade and painstakingly hand-painted. Each piece of Quimper is unique. One artist handpaints each piece from start to finish. Each piece is then initialed by the artists and marked Henriot to ensure its authenticity. I'm cleaning out my closets of gifts never given, items never used, clothes never worn, projects never done, etc.
