A charming reprint of a decorative french Quimper napkin ring, based on an original 19th century design sketch sourced for our collection. This print comes hand framed in a wide bordered archival ivory double-accent mount and a weathered petrol blue frame.
Being so ornamental, this print could hang in many spaces but would work particularly well in a kitchen or dining room.
Quimper (pronounced "kem-pair"), is a small town in Brittany renowned since the 1600s for its hand-painted pottery reflecting Breton culture. Colourful scenes of everyday rural life, Breton figures in traditional clothing and intricate patterns were typically painted on items of tableware - such napkin rings, knife rest and salt cellars.
