      Thanks for sharing this stunning plate!

      Some more on him:

      In 1870, Antonin Boullemier emigrated to England and went to work at Mintons. He “added both humour and sentiment to tableware production with his freely painted cherubs and infants, creating wares highly prized throughout the world, and particularly in America.”² A versatile artists, he “painted a dessert service with two hundred and fifty different cherub reserves against a bleu-celeste ground”³ for the Prince of Wales in 1870. Colin Minton Campbell (August 17, 1827-February 7, 1885) “obtained from Queen Victoria the loan of a number of priceless Sevres vases, which were reproduced exactly, Boullemier and Leroy executing the painting, and Aaron Simpson the gilding.”? He painted a dessert service with one hundred and four cherub reserves for the marriage of HRH Prince Alfred to Marie Alexandrovna on January 1, 1874. The dessert service included “fifty dessert plates, twenty-four compotiers, eight fruit and flower baskets, four jardinieres, and eighteen menu holders.”? Antonin Boullemier’s work was displayed at the 1878 Exposition Universelle, Paris, May 1 to November 10, 1878, “much and admiring interest has been taken in the ‘Prometheus Vases’ in turquoise; the handsome vases with cupids by Boullemier, after Angelica Kauffman.”? Also, “conspicuous among them (Minton exhibition) was the Edinburgh dessert-service in turquoise and gold, with paintings of cupids and emblematical devices by Boullemier,” “this charming pair of vases has since been purchased by her Majesty.”? Boullemier painted miniatures and portraits exhibited at the Royal Academy Exhibitions in 1881 and 1882. He painted forty-eight cupids and shields plates on a pink ground for the King of the Belgians in 1887. Boullemier submitted drawings for nine different dinner, dessert, and tea ware services for the Prince of Wales in 1888. His other painted dessert services featured reproductions of Francois Boucher (September 29, 1703-May 30, 1770), French classical painter, Angelica Kauffman (October 30, 1741-November 5, 1807), Swiss-Austrian neoclassical painter, Vernet, and Jean-Antoine Watteau (October 10, 1604-July 18, 1721) French classical painter.

      Although Antonin Boullemier continued to work for Minton, after criticism from Colin Minton Campbell, he “tore up his contract,” started a business at Penkhull New Road, and “was free to decorate for other houses.”? Boullemier painted porcelain for Coalport between 1890 and 1892. He decorated the “colossal” Shakespeare vase for the Brown, Westhead, Moore & Co. displayed at the World’s Columbian Exposition, Chicago, May 1, 1893 to October 30, 1893. The Shakespeare vase was “fired in twenty-two pieces and beautiful in color is next in point of wonder.”

      “Longfellow’s “Evangeline,” pictured on twelve plates by A. Boullemier, is the glory of the Cauldon exhibit. The borders of the plates are treated in raised gold work and the scenes are exquisite in color. These are valued at $2,000.”

      “From a purely feminine and domestic point of view the gem of the collection is not, however, a vase, but a dejeuner service by Boullemier for the Duchess of Sutherland. The pieces are ivory-tinted and ornamented with gold. On each is a little scene that is essentially French and mischievous in character. The price of the service, it may be of interest to know, is $500.” “Considering the extremely high finish of most of his work he was amazingly prolific and was represented at all the exhibitions up to 1900.”

      “His work will always obtain for him an honourable position in English ceramics, but he will be long remembered in Staffordshire for his personality alone.”¹³ Antonin Boullemier died on April 25, 1900 in Stoke-on-Trent. "
