Antonin Boullemier, the famous artist (and a real Monsewer) from France

SOME fascinating family history of Expressman Tony ‘Monsewer’ Boullemier has been uncovered.


His grandfather Antonin was a famous artist in his day — and a real Monsewer. Antonin painted ceramics and pottery for Minton. The two plates pictured above were sold for £1,200 at Bonhams in 2010. The catalogue says ‘one depicts a male gypsy in a bacchanalian pose, the other shows a woman in a sensual pose’.


A fan of Antonin has dug out some 1900 cuttings from the Stoke on Trent Evening Sentinel has conveniently dug out some cuttings about the great man’s death so we can all enjoy them.
