This piece is done in the terre vernisse relief style. It depicts a French boy playing the bagpipes with a handsome reticulated border that shows the famous fleur-de-lis, as well as ermine tails. The color scheme is very provincial and quaint in a delightful manner. The factory that this was made in was known as Porquier Beau.

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.
