This handsome Breton figure gives a glimpse of a young lad from another time. Long brown hair is capped by a hat of blue. This matches the vest, which is covered by green crossed arms. The confident young man has a belt with baggy khaki color pants and long red socks. Orange shoes finish his attire. The boy leans against an orange, yellow, and green rock and stands upon a green base. The base reads, “Yann”, presumably the boy’s name. The bottom of the piece is marked. This would make a great piece for any Quimper collection.

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.
