Boch Frères Charles Catteau Pelikan Animal Stoneware Art Deco Fantasia

$8,000

About

Art Deco Gres Keramis stoneware vase designed by Charles Catteau for Boch Frères of Belgium, circa 1925. These animal designs (this being a Pelikan) are the most sought after and most collectible of all the Catteau pieces. Stoneware pieces with animal motifs are even more difficult to find and extremely rare. Over the years whenever I have seen a decorative item whether glass, ceramic, stoneware, or lighting, designs with animals are always the most highly sought after. A special signature on the bottom. The particular has an unusual treatment in the multiple ways the enamel paint has applied. There are nuances of peppered to with an overlay of dark brown Africanistic design. The birds are symmetrical facing to the back of each other. An extremely rare design one I’ve only seen in books. a Great collector’s advance piece. This model is illustrated in the book “Art Deco Ceramics, Charles Catteau” by Marc Pairon (page 474). Catteau was considered the master of Art Deco Design, and his work predates the explosion of the style in the 1920s. He was trained in the famous ceramics school in Sevres, France, and then in 1906 hired by Boch Pottery a venerable company in business since the mid-1800s but looking for a fresh direction. He was featured in the Paris Exposition of Artes Decorative in 1925, by then creating hundreds of pieces every year with distinctive shapes and forms. A team of artists worked with him, applying the pigments to his designs that merged geometric and floral embellishment. In the past twenty years, many books, publications, and exhibitions have highlighted the major accomplishments of Charles Catteau.
