I love the parrot motif, which is rarely seen on the secondary market, so decided to sell all three pieces together, even though we would make more money if we sold them separately. Just couldn't break this trio up! I consider this art pottery as a fabulous example of the artistry of Charles Catteau.
Country of Origin: Belgium.
Manufacturer: Boch Freres.
Artist: Charles Catteau.
Medium: Glazed Earthenware Vessels.

Stamped and incised MADE IN BELGIUM, BOCH FES, LA LOUVIÈRE, FABRICATION BELGE (effaced mark), D.1047, Ct.
Condition: One small vase apparently without "D.1047, Ct." mark. Boch Freres mark on Jardinière and one small vase (slightly effaced). Jardinière with small area of adhesive residue probably due to previous sticker. Errant scratches and glaze imperfections inherent to manufacture throughout, and with minor crazing throughout. Otherwise with minor surface wear commensurate with use and age.
