Quimper Preorders:

We do keep some inventory in stock. You will note the IN STOCK markings throughout our site. If an item says Preorder from France, we will order that item for you and you will receive your items in approximately 8-10 weeks. Sorry for the delay but it does take time to have the factory make your order and have the item shipped here to the states. Once we receive your item from the factory we will notify you by email that we are now  shipping your item out. You will then have your Quimper items within 4 days. For Christmas items, we recommend preordering items by the end of August.


We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover and PayPal.


Quimper items are shipped USPS or FEDEX Ground (United States Postal Service) with delivery confirmation; so someone may need to sign for your order when it arrives.

We strongly suggest that you ship to your place of business, since normally no one will be home at your home address during the day to sign for your package.

**On International Orders, our shipping fees do not include any customs or duty that your country may impose. Please contact us for International Shipping costs.

How Do I Care for My Quimper Faience Pottery?
Dishwasher Use:

For everyday use of your Henriot Quimper-service, the factory recommends washing by hand. If occasionally you want to wash your service in the dishwasher, it is preferable to use a small dose laundry powder and salt to preserve the refreshing burst of faience (detergents for dishwashers are often very abrasive and may dull the enamel).
