Quimper Advertisement

The advertisement pictured about is from the September, 193o's Ladies' Home Journal magazine. I wonder how popular Quimper was back then? It would be interesting to know when the peak of Quimper sales in the US took place. Where different decors popular in different decades? Any thoughts? Maybe some of our dealer/collector's have an idea...

Happy Collecting! - Katie


  1. What a great piece of Q ephemera, Katie.
    Is this pancake mix from Aunt Jemima still produced? Wouldn't it be great to replicate the ad if possible, I'm thinking this could make a fascinating blog party???I wonder what Sarah would think of the idea?

  2. Katie, as Maggie says, "great piece of Q emphemera." And I think her idea of replicating this for a table scape is a terrific idea. You could use your little pitcher!
    Hope you are feeling a little bit settled. Thinking of you!
    Hugs ~ Sarah

  3. That is an interesting question, and what a great ad. laurie
