One of My Favorite Pieces

I can't think of a reason why this little pitcher is one of my favorite pieces. Its not old or an interesting pattern per say. It was made in the 1980's and I purchased it from fellow co-founder Lucy Williams.

Maybe because of its age I am not afraid to use it. It has always been my go to piece when a have a single flower to bring in from the garden.

Here again I like to mix it with blue/white china and silver. I was thinking the other day that it would look great with the majolica green cabbage earthenware. What do you like to mix yours with?

Happy Collecting! - Katie


  1. Katie, I like to mix the Q with other things. It's interesting how it fits right in with many other looks. I use love it with my pewter chargers and the blue and white. Bright solid colors are perfect to set off the beauty of Quimper.

  2. it goes with your other pieces and your flower looks lovely in it too!

  3. Hi, Katie, at the 2009 Dallas meeting, I noticed that a lot of our collectors there have the green majolica cabbage plates displayed next to their Quimper ware, and yes (!), they all seem to work together splendidly!
