Offered for sale is a beautiful Bourdois & Bloch Paris Porcelain pitcher with a face mask on spout, hand painted with sprays of flowers. The pitcher has a carved and cut pattern to the surface with a rounded handle and was produced during the Marc Eugene Clauss period, 1868 – 1887.
Bourdois & Bloch was founded by Jean Marx Clauss in 1820 and was continued by his son and several partners until it was renamed Porcelaine De Paris circa 1948. They were famous for their beautiful high quality white porcelain and incredible hand decoration.
Bourdois & Bloch used the crossed swords mark as found in this piece and because the workmanship and porcelain are so superb, they are often mistaken for Meissen.
The pitcher is in excellent condition with minor gilt wear to the handle.
