This rustic barber bowl taps into French agricultural themes. The central motif is a handsome blue rooster set upon a white background with blue plants. Light and dark blue combine to give detail to the various features of the fine feathered fowl. This theme goes well with the time-worn tradition of barbering by hand. The chin would go where the indent in the bowl lies. The piece is signed on inside of bowl.

The tin-glazed hand painted French faience known as Quimper Pottery (pronounced “cam-pair” has been manufactured in Quimper, a town in Brittany, France, for over 300 years. Although the area has been associated with pottery as far back as the Gallo-Roman era, Jean Baptiste Bousquet is credited with being the founder of Quimper Pottery. Bousquet built his kilns in the vicinity in 1685 and was given a royal manufacturing license by King Louis XIV. Since that time, Quimper has been highly collectible and is known around the world for its French countryside style of pottery.
