Two ceramic knife rests made at the Henriot Quimper pottery in France circa 1930, each hand painted with a man, a woman, and flowers. The styling is very similar on the two but they are probably a marriage rather than having been painted by one person - the sponged decor on the end for the Petite Bretonne is green while the ends for the Petit Breton are blue. Both are in very good used condition with some wear but no other damage. Measuring 3-1/4 inches in length they are being offered for sale as a pair.

Purely stylized flowers and foliage decorate this demitasse size coffee cup with a larger, coordinating saucer, made at the Grande Maison HB in France circa 1950s. The cup is marked with the initials of the painter (PR) while the saucer has only the word France on the underside. The glaze colors used and the painter's hand indicate these were always meant as a set (there may not have been any smaller saucers at the time). Both pieces are in excellent condition. The cup measures 2-3/8 inches in height; the saucer measures 5-3/8 inches in diameter.

A larger size morning coffee or tea cup and saucer made in France by the Grande Maison HB in the 1930s. The depiction on the cup is a petit breton holding a fishing pole, with flower sprays and primitive birds. The shape of the cup's handle was used in the 1930s and the glaze colors are bright, indicating these pieces were manufactured before World War II. The cup is completely marked while the saucer is marked France only. Measurements: the cup is 3-3/18 inches in diameter and 2-1/2 inches in height; the saucer is 6 inches in diameter. The rim of the cup shows light wear. I have another set done at the same time by the same painter, also depicting a man.

A vintage plate made in France at Henriot, signed on the front and dating circa 1935. Some of the decoration was done after glazing, notably the mauve apron that has alligator crazing and the rust colored cuffs. The colors used for the costume are unusual as is the shading of the grass. The base glaze was applied hastily on the back of the plate and there are glaze skips on the scalloped rim but no actual damage. The plate measures 9-1/2 inches in diameter.
