Vintage French Quimper Faience Covered Dish

Originally used as a butter keeper, this ornately painted example can now serve as your  jam, honey or “caviar keeper”!

Wonderful primary colors used in the Décor Riche painting of a Breton woman in a field surrounded by desirable deep blue scroll-work. Additional details of local flowers from Brittany, France adorn the top and sides. The bottom scalloped plate is actually permanently attached, so no worries for sliding! And the looped handle makes handling the lid much easier. Vintage French Quimper Faience tends to be highly collectible because of its charm and naïve yet bold beauty.

Handmade and Hand Painted in Brittany, France

ca 1930-1950

Signed on lid and base: HB Quimper in black paint under the glaze.

Minor glaze chips, as expected with age of French Faience.

Please note, all of Maria’s European LifeStyle vintage and antique items have expected signs of wear and use…this is why we love them. Their perfect imperfections are celebrated here. We do, however, try our best to note any exceptional issues, but view photos or call us for further details. We love talking about our treasures!
