Boch Freres Keramis was founded in 1841, in La Louviere in Belgium, by Eugene and Victor Boch and their brother-in-law. They produced earthenware, stoneware and many other wares. Early pieces resembled Delft and Villeroy & Boch. They were known for their ceramic cloisonne technique otherwise known as "gras" and their Art Deco creations from the early 1900's. Many pieces were outlined in black and had small pieces of glass, enamel and other materials adorning the creations. In 1906, designer Charles Catteau joined the company as artistic director.
His designs were inspired by African, Cubist and Japanese elements. Popular designs included animals, florals and geometric shapes. Boch Freres Keramis closed down in 1985. Other companies acquired them, went bankrupt and finally closed for good in 2009.
