Quimper Collection

I have been collecting Quimper for about twelve years, and in love with this Faience since I was a little girl. My first memory was going with my Mamma and looking at beautiful plates at a local gift/flea market shop. I remember the bright yellow color of the Soleil pattern and thought, I will buy this when I grow up....Well, I was faithful to myself and have a collection to serve eight and several serving dishes. I have this pattern displayed in my dinning room, I think it looks beautiful with the cherry wood of the furniture.





After the holidays I usually go through some of my stored collection and pull a few pieces to display for a fresh look.

  1. Emily your soleil collection is wonderful. I think the yellow is some of my favorites, though I don't have a service as you do. What cheerful pieces on which to dine.
