Where to buy Provence type Pottery in Paris?

Williams and Sonoma has a beautiful large platter that is supposedly made in Provence, France for $199. I would like to buy something similar to it while I am in Paris. Any ideas where to go to find such an item?

La Tuile à Loup is a good candidate...
35 Rue Daubenton, 75005

I have bought several pieces of pottery at this store. The owner travels around France and buys directly from the artisans. The store is on Rue Jacob, not far from the St. Germain metro stop.

Travelnut - that store looks awesome! I stayed very near there at Hotel Monge and can't believe I didn't see it. It is on my list for my next visit. Thanks!

La Tuile a Loup is fabulous -- it's like a museum. I go every time I'm in Paris and look at everything and buy some little thing. I drank my coffee this morning from a beautiful mug made in Alsace.

I don't know if you'll find a platter like the one Williams Sonoma carries, but you'll find one at least as beautiful, if not more so, but also will likely be more expensive.

The shop also stocks tablecloths and baskets and other interesting items.

After you shop you can wander over the a cafe on Rue Moufftard and have a glass of wine or a cafe.

Don't miss this shop -- you'll love it.

Thank you travelnut and cls2paris - this is exactly the type of shop I was looking for. I will assume that I can ship my purchases home.

I have recently shopped at both Maison Ivre on rue Jacob and Tuile a Loop on rue Daubenton.. Both are wonderful and worth seeking out. Love love love them both! In fact, I was at Ivre today and bought my friend a gift and I'm going back tomorrow to buy a similar thing for myself because I love it so much. While I'm out and about, I'll go to a Loop!
