Recently at the Pasadena Flea Market I found… a Quimper plate!
|French Quimper Plate|
It was the first thing I bought at the show… and can you guess how much I paid for it?
$2! Yep! TWO DOLLARS! That’s it! Can you believe it?
Based on the markings on the back of the plate, I believe it was made sometime between 1922-1968. Not too bad! Not antique, but definitely not new!

I put the plate above this painting which is with my other Faience plates. Now that I put it above the painting… I think I may need some more to go above the painting as well? What do you think?
Here’s a picture of what the other plates look like up close: ( I remember we paid $40 for the set of four)

Hope you enjoyed my little flea market find.
