This breathtaking decorative platter shows two Breton men playing musical instruments (bagpipe and horn/pipe) as they walk through a field. Tall trees and birds sit against a white sky with blue clouds in the background. An ornate golden yellow laurel pattern and geometric zig-zag pattern create a gorgeous, raised border. The back of the plate is marked. It dates to c. 1925.

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.
