Fantastic designs, faithful reproductions, quality craftsmanship & great prices. A very rare Villeroy & Boch Mettlach vase. There are similar examples out there but this one is much finer, please study the photos. No damage or wear, looks new. Top diameter – 7cm. Base diameter – 6.5cm. We believe this hand made pottery vase was crafted around 1840’s. Factory founded in 1844, the factory survived until 1985. There are links to Royal Boch. They are many beautiful designs from this factory, especially the work of the artist Catteau. The white applied design mark is called “sprigging”. It was clear to me from researching the timeline of the company Villeroy and Boch that these two interlinked firms were making similar faience sprigged vases in two different places (Mettlach, Saar and Saint-Vaast, Hainaut) and putting on their own individual sprigged mould pottery marks. The date for both appear to be the mid-1800’s and this is a very important and historic maker, so expect the values to be high for this items. 1841 – Jean-François’s son, Eugène Boch is tasked with founding a new Belgian branch at Saint-Vaast, Hainaut. This factory is named “Keramis”. 1844 – The BOCH Frères company is formed between brothers Eugène and Victor together with their brother-in-law Jean-Baptiste Nothomb.
