This stunning inkstand contains housing for two inkwells and dates to c. 1930. The colors are classic Quimper – with blues and yellows dancing on a white background. The front of the piece shows a Breton man. Ornate rounded green and blue laurels give the stand a beveled shape in a rococo style.

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.
