Quest for Quimper
Want to Read
Join this journey to the flea markets of Paris, the brocantes of Brittany, and into the heart of the city of Quimper, to see hundreds of examples of this distinctive and beautiful French pottery, some of it quite unique and rare. Learn about the history, art, and spirit of the Breton people, as reflected on the pottery from Quimper. Meet merchants, faïencerie personnel, and museum directors whose history in Quimper goes back for generations. More than 800 photographs bring an in-depth look at the famous pottery, Quimper, and its home, Brittany. An important first for the collector is a chapter of alphabetically-ordered Quimper pottery, presented in photos and text. Definitions are given and price ranges listed, based on 12 years of market-trend observations in the United States, France, and more recently, the Internet.
