Today little of the early French faience is seen outside of museums. Fortunately for us, fashions change, and from the 19th century to today the colorful wares of Desvres, Quimper and others, attract collectors worldwide.

 

Perhaps the most universally known faiencerie is Quimper (pronounced kam-pair), whose depictions of Breton figures on their wares have remained popular. It was founded in 1695 by Jean Baptiste Bousquet in the town of Quimper, where wood for firing and good clay were abundant.
