Antique Ceramics in Paris?

Jump to last reply

I'll be in Paris at the end of the week, my third visit, for a few days of research.

I'm looking for a high-quality small piece, preferably antique, to give to a dear friend who owns a ceramics store in Japan when I see her at New Year's.

Back in 2001, other posters recommended shops on the rue de Paradis in the 10eme, the Cour Damoye near the Place de la Bastille, and Maison Ivre (38, rue Jacob in the 6eme). The latter looks like it's worth checking out, and I'll walk around the other two streets a bit. Recommended also was a place with Mexican pottery, Cote Hacienda, 14, rue de Birague, which I'll check, too. It's just south of my hotel, and, as I spent part of my youth in Mexico City, I always like to see how other cultures interpret my adopted home town. But I'm hoping for a piece from France or perhaps Spain, which I'll visit in November. As I've already got a full schedule I'd like to avoid a trip outside Paris, e.g., to Sèvres, unless that's necessary.

The old post is here: http://www.fodors.com/community/europe/ceramics-paris.cfm

I haven't found any other threads on the forums since then.

Anyone have ideas for other places with antique ceramics?

Thanks for reading this!
