Duo fruit trees - Quince & Pear?

Does anyone know of a duo fruit tree that bears both pear and quince fruits?
From my limited knowledge I would have thought this pairing should be possible, as pear trees are often grafted onto quince root stock, however I cannot find anything online.
I saw someone write into Gardeners' World magazine a couple of months ago who had a pear tree that had accidentally started bearing quince as well, but I'm looking for one that deliberately does this!
Any thoughts or advice welcome, thanks.
IT'S AN INTERESTING IDEA BUT QUINCE TREES GENERALLY DON'T NEED PRUNING WHILE PEARS DO. THE END RESULT AFTER A FEW YEARS MIGHT BE A BIT LOPSIDED?
If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.
My pear has become a quince tree when the branch broke accidentally. It only flowers every year but no fruits. Perhaps it needs another tree to bear fruits?!
