Belgian Art Deco Ceramic Vase by Charles Catteau

This rare and striking vase was designed by Charles Catteau (1880 – 1966) in 1933 for his Atelier de Fantaisie at Boch Freres Keramis in La Louviere, Belgium. The 12” high stoneware vase is decorated in thick enamels in pumpkin orange, cream, and dark brown. The geometric decoration includes stylized floral heads and leaves in a central border with a series of five brown lines on cream with an orange ground. It is marked on the bottom with the design number “D 1710” in cream slip and impressed with the form number “975”. Marc Pairon, in his monumental book Art Deco Ceramics Made in Belgium lists the design by Charles Catteau and notes it as “rare”.
