Description

Beautiful well used French Faience candlestick. Backmark appears to date this between 1917 and 1948.

 

“One of the really intriguing, and somewhat ingenious, markings involved the use of “Morse code” by the HB factory to identify its artists – which is to say, a combination of dashes, dots, circles, and crosses, symbolizing specific artist signatures.[4] These ‘signatures’ were in use from approximately 1917-1948, while Jules Verlingue was the proprietor of the factory. 

The base of the two-part tray in Lot 467 of our November auction demonstrates this marking method, using a short dot or dash, a circle, and another short dot or dash beneath the HB Quimper factory marker.”
