PROVENANCE: Former Hippolyte Marie-Joseph Boivin collection (Guermantes, September 8, 1857, Bouvresse June 19, 1912). This scholar from the end of the 19th century constitutes a collection of patriotic earthenware of great importance, having been exhibited on several occasions in French museums. With a collector's temperament, Hippolyte Boivin brings together earthenware from Rouen, Marseille, Strasbourg, Delft, Nevers, watches with enameled dials from the First Empire, old members, cabinets and clocks from Normandy and Picardy, chests and clocks from various eras, tapestries, rattles from all over France and even from abroad. His grandson recounts that H. Boivin and his wife traveled from village to village, buying all the objects which seemed to them of a certain interest. These acquisitions enrich his own collections and those of the Beauvais museum, of which he was the curator from 1889 to 1912. In this collection business, he was also passionate about military memorabilia, mainly hairstyles, brassware, bridle bits and various souvenirs. historical. He had a gallery fitted out in his garden to house his military collections, which would later be presented in the “Boivin room” of the Dejean barracks (Amiens), destroyed during the Second World War. Hippolyte Boivin manifests his predilection for patriotic earthenware by reproducing by drawing and watercolor the pieces he has collected. Two reasons can explain this attraction: first, the exile of his family of Champagne origin during the German invasion of 1870, may have given him a taste for patriotic and military objects; then, the profession of his maternal grandfather, operating a stoneware pottery factory in La Chapelle-aux-Pots, perhaps fostered his attraction to ceramics. The objects constituting the collection of this enlightened enthusiast were therefore all purchased according to the opportunities encountered in the “field”, which moreover is given the period of collection: from the fall of Napoleon III until the eve of the Great War, their homogeneity has been particularly preserved.
