20thC Martell Cognac Quimper Advertising Figure

A mid 20th century faience bar figure, made in France by Henriot Quimper to advertise Martell Cognac. This 'toff-like' character, with head shaped like a brandy glass, was used to advertise Martell between approximately the 1920s and 1970s. Unusually, he is complete with his perspex monocle and glass, and his cigarette is undamaged.
The base bears the Henriot Quimper backstamp.

Condition : There are three shallow chips to the bottom edge of the base.


  • H: 24.5cm (9.65in)
  • W: 21.3cm (8.39in)
  • D: 12.8cm (5.04in)

Welcome to Ginger Tom's Curious Eclectic.  We are a husband and wife team, both with a lifelong interest in antiques. Our business stems from the usual collector turned dealer scenario.  As our own collections grew, it became obvious we needed to redistribute some items in order to make space to buy new treasures to feed our own habit.

Buying to sell seemed the natural progression from this. We have been involved in buying and selling since 2004, but have only recently taken the decision to establish an online presence. We don't specialise in any particular area, but our interests do influence our stock purchases to a degree.

Our stock includes a varied mix of unusual antique, interesting vintage and stylish contemporary objects that would suit many different settings. Our key criteria is that we only buy, and therefore only sell, items that we would have in our own home and believe that if we like something, others will too.

Our opening hours are 9.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday.
