Riassunto: Entertaining and informative, Quimper Pottery: A Guide to Origins, Styles, and Values provides a comprehensive look at this centuries-old French folk art and its history. More than simply a guide, this book is a sharing of knowledge that actually teaches how to assess the age, authenticity, and value of Quimper pottery. Painstakingly researched, this new work boldly corrects several long-standing misconceptions about Quimper pottery and is destined to become the definitive book on the subject. Beginning with a thorough briefing of the background and traditions that make each piece so unique, this outstanding book features over 500 color photographs showing the development of Quimper pottery from ordinaire to extraordinaire. Also included are sections profiling the artists responsible for many of the designs, as well as invaluable, detailed advice on how to care for and enjoy a collection of art pottery.
Sinossi: Quimper faience pottery has been produced by three primary factories in the French town of Quimper (pronounced Kem-pair), and this book explains, compares and contrasts the factories and their products. The colorful and charming decorations on French Quimper pottery have made it a popular ware for over 300 years. Collected in North America and England today, old Quimper ware is presented in 290 clear color photographs with makers' marks and a newly updated price guide.
