Cubist style glazed ceramic tile. Unusual composition. One man plays an 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.) Two available. This one has no chips on the side but one large chip on the back middle. This chip does not affect the external appearance or structure of the piece. Measures 10.5 x 10.5 inches and weighs 2 lbs. 7.5oz. Belgium, c.1950s. See our other Boschmans pieces.
