Cubist style glazed ceramic tile. Unusual composition. One man plays the accordion, one holds up a stick or measuring tool, and another seems to dance. Signed on the side of the tile by Rene Boschmans and on the back Coceram. The back is also stamped with a Masonic symbol. Part of a set. The Belgian company Faïencerie Coceram was established in 1947 and closed in 1960. Rene Boschmans (1913-1996) was a Belgian artist who worked with them. He is known for monuments related to the celebration of socialist reform. (See the 1959 Arthur Vanderpoort monument outside the Royal Athenaeum in Sint-Michiels, Belgium, outside of Bruges. This monument honors the man who enacted school reform.) This one has two very minor chips on the side. Two available. Measures 10.5 x 10.5 inches and weighs 2 lbs. 7.5oz. Belgium, c.1950s.
