BOCH FRERES KERAMIS – CHARLES CATTEAU - Vase Daims - 1925 -
Vase Daims (Fallow Deers) designed in 1924 by Charles Catteau (1880-1966) in 1925 for the Exposition Universelle des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels modernes à Paris and executed in his Atelier de Fantasie at Boch Frères Keramis. This stylised Daims design was very popular in the Art Deco years. The Daims referred to Art Deco themes as speed, dynamism, elegance and lightness. Charles Catteau (1880-1960) was the most versatile ceramic artist of his generation. He was born in Douai, graduated in Sèvres and started in 1906 with Boch where he stayed until 1946. The Royal Museum of Art and History (Cinquantenaire) has a special area entirely dedicated to the works of art of Charles Catteau.
