Customer Question

I have a small porcelain cow/milkmaid which came to our country when my maternal grandmother came from Normandy France over a century ago.
A bit of research tells me it may have been made at a factory called Faïencerie de HENRIOT de Quimper in Bretagne, France. It is painted in a flowery design as seen on different porcelain pieces.
I am anxious to have it appraised and would appreciate any help you can provide. I live near Winnipeg Canada.
Thank you.

Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques and art collector as well as a dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you. Please know I do not send pop-ups. Thoughtful responses take time.

Photos are almost always required to give an accurate assessment.

What size is it in inches?

Please send a photo of the marks and/or words/and/or words on the bottom.

Please send a photo of the figurine.

You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the marks.

If you cannot get a good photo, then sketch the marks and take a photo of the sketch.

To send photos you may use the "add files" in the blue box link on your reply page or the "paper clip" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.
Please do not send in ZIP format. The jpg or jpeg format works best.
