Quimper Faience in Savannah.

QCI members gather outside the saleroom
ready to shop until they drop.
Here at last, for your delectation, photographs from the Members Faience Sale which took place during our Sojourn in Savannah.

I'll just sit back and listen to your gasps of amazement at all the beautiful things our member dealers had to offer.

 The choice was stunning, almost overwhelming.
Trisha Johnson
Sadly, Tricia has decided she can no longer devote the time, away from her career as a very succesful veterinarian, to maintain "Maison de la Croix" and was holding a "closing down" sale.

Can you see the door push plate on Noelle's table above, very pretty but more colourful than the ones I recently acquired and so I left it for someone else to snap up.

Finally, a pair of HR octagonal plates beautifully handpainted with a man and a woman dressed in costumes from my region of France, Normandy and a pretty floral border.
They had to come back to live with me in France.

Back view.
The linked PB mark and Normandie inscription were used by the Henriot faiencerie on regional souvenir wares and date the plates to circa 1920.
I hope that you have enjoyed the virtual visit to the saleroom today, remember as a QClub member you can find links on the QCI website to all our member dealers, including those who sadly didn't make it to Savannah this year.
I'll be linking this post to Laurie's A Few of My Favourite Things Saturday meme, be sure to call in and see all the other participants taking part this week.
Laurie is a fan of Quimper too, who knows she might just join the Club when she sees all the wonderful Q here today.


  1. OMG- I wouldn't have known where to start looking first- wonderful selection of Quimper. So glad you took Mr and Mrs back home to Normandy.

  2. Maggie, your plates are dear. So happy they are going back to Normandy with you. Love the shape and the border. ~ Sarah

  3. Maggie, for those of us who didn't go, thank you for giving us a glimpse of all the treasures which were for sale. I am drooling over some.

    Your plates are perfect, I love the Normande decor.

    Have a great day!

  4. So many pretty Quimpers! I would go crazy there, good thing I wasn't part of it, lol...Christine

  5. WOW...what a selection of Quimpers!! My eyes wouldn't know where to look first :)


  6. Oh Maggie, I know you could hear my gasps and sighs wherever you are now! What fun this must have been. Thank you for linking to Favorite Things Sat. (I almost didn't get past the header to read this post - those pieces in the header are gorgeous - I'm loving the children under the umbrella). laurie
