About Catteau & Boch Frères circa 1925!

The Belgian firm Boch Frères Keramis made large quantities of distinctive ceramics with slip-cast bodies and eye-catching, hand-painted decoration. The wares were also sold internationally in scores at fashionable galleries and department stores. The firm employed many French-trained artists, most notably Franco-Belgian Charles Catteau. In 1907, at age twenty-seven, he became the head of the decoration department at Boch Frères Keramis. Catteau obtained international recognition at the Paris Exposition of 1925 (Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs Industriels et Modernes).
