    my first boch freres vase, just came this morning to complete my european ceramic collection-)

    i'm not sure if it could be attributed to charles catteau, as he was employed in boch freres factory in early art nouveau period to art deco wellnow production as art director.

    it is a continuity for my colloction to create a connection with the catteau work with other manufactuer as sevres and rambervillers.

    the model of this vase is made by the technic called "chalcography"

    note from wiki : chalcography (from Greek chalcos, copper and graphia, to write), are engravings on copper plates used for printmaking and for illustrations in the production of books. The Monte dei Santi di Dio by Antonio Bettini is the most ancient book bearing chalcographies, printed in Florence on September 10, 1477 from Nicolo di Lorenzo Tedesco. Its primacy is contested by Ptolemy's Cosmographia, printed in Bologna on June 23, 1477 from Domenico de' Lapi, a Latin translation from Jacopo d'Angelo, containing geographical charts and maps by Taddeo Crivelli, engraved in copper plates.

    the vase is decorate in art nouveau style, floral pattern i do think iris flowers?

    signed under the base BFK. AS BOCH FRERES KERAMIS;
