BOCH Frères Kéramis
Created in 1841, at La Louvière in Belgium, by Eugène and Victor Boch, the Kéramis factory is a great classic earthenware factory, whose flagship is the creation of Delft decorations. The arrival in 1906 of designer Charles Catteau gave it new impetus. Present at the International Exhibition of Decorative Arts in 1925 and the Salon d'Automne in Paris, she worked for the art workshops of department stores - Primavera, Pomone and la Maitrise - influenced by Japanism, Africanism and the avant-garde.
