Quimper Pottery, pronounced "cam-pair" has been manufactured in the Quimper, a town in Brittany, France since 1708. The name does not refer to a specific brand or single manufacturer but the region in France where it is produced.  Quimper is considered faience, a French tin-glazed pottery similar to majolica in style.  The most well-known pieces are hand-painted with traditionally dressed peasants, sea and flower motifs, as will as other folk motifs inspired by the region of Brittany.
