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.

    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?!
