More Camaïeu Blue Faï Sarah A

It's time once again for Blue Monday with Smiling Sally.

Several collections of French faïence in camaïeu blue have been shown here on QCI. You can find a list of these articles at the end of this post. Today I'd like to share photos of a collection of camaïeu blue faïence that I visited several years ago. These pieces belong to my friend, Charna, who graciously agreed to let me share them with you.
I don't know specifics about each of Charna's pieces, but I do know they are French, and they are indeed lovely. Charna has a wonderful wall of built-in cases, and these delights fill the shelves. Just imagine waking to these serene pieces each morning.

As I said, I don't know the specifics about each of these so I will just show the photos. Enjoy!

I hope you enjoyed seeing some more pieces in this charming art style. It's difficult to improve on the combination of blue and white. Charna's collection offers a look at some unusual forms and some exquisite painting.

  7. Sarah, your articles are always so lovely! As you know, I was hooked on Delft..even before Quimper, so we are kin in the love of blues. I enjoyed this post, and was interested to see that item in the fourth from the last photo. I have this piece, but with a different scene, and lo and behold..yours has a lid! Didn't even know one was missing as it makes a fine urn shaped vase. Any idea of the maker?..or did you, like I, just buy it because you loved it? Thanks for an always excellent post.
