HB Quimper Lug Bowl with Bretonne Woman-- EXTRA LARGE (8 Inches), Vintage
HB QUIMPER VINTAGE LUG BOWL with BRETONNE WOMAN
Here is an older HBQuimper lug bowl with the figure of a Bretonne woman. The hand paintedfigurestanding between trees has a wonderful naive feel.The woman is in the traditional costume of Brittany with her apron and coif. The colors of the bowl are very appealing--cobalt for the bands encircling the bowl paired with persimmon, green and a touch of black. The sprays of pine accented with flowers on the sides of the bowl pick up the colors on the interior of the bowl. The dimensions of the bowl are 8" (including handles)--5" without handles-- and the height is 3.25". The HB Quimper mark is on the inside of the bowl, as an artist's signature (see photo of interior of bowl).There are a few minor flecks on the bowl commensurate with age. In general, the bowl is in nice condition, with no hairlines or significant chips. It weighs a little over a pound, so has a good heft. It is a fine piece for display.
