Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

In 1871, Bernhard Bloch established a pottery in Eichwald, Bohemia and conducted business under the name B. Bloch & Company. The company was one of the few that continued to produce majolica after World War I.

Under the Treaty of Versailles, Czechoslovakia was created from territories of both Germany and the Austro-Hungarian Empire. B. Bloch & Company was renamed Eichwald Porcelain and Stove Factory in 1920.

Bloch is recognised for production of a large variety of tobacco items known as smoker’s companions or smoke sets. Bloch was also unique in producing a number of majolica dishes and wall plaques with erotic themes which was altogether unusual during the Victorian era.

A fabulous tazza or cake stand in this lovely art nouveau design, adorned with petite pink roses on a green backdrop. This incredible piece is truly something and would look lovely used as a centrepiece or in a display of beautiful majolica dishes.

It measures approx 12cm tall x 25.5cm diameter and is in excellent vintage condition, with very little surface wear, just a small amount commensurate with age.

Based on the stamping and design we can date this piece to the 1920s-30s.
