Rare Antique BERNARD BLOCH Terracotta Tobacco Humidor Jar – Man Sitting Top Hat Figural man reacing a book and holding an umbrella. Perhaps a dandy from back in the day out bird watching with his monocle in place and a binocular? Pouch on his right side. Marked BB on Bottom (Bernard Bloch) 393 and also reads in German Vervielfaltigung Vorbehalten Identified as Phileas Fogg from the Jules Verne story AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS. Measures (inches): 13″ tall x 6″ wide x 7 deep. Condition – many paint chips on front cape of figure on upper and lower portion of piece, left front shoe was reaffixed at the spat, head and tophat scarf were reaffixed with a clean line break front to back with a chip on the left neck, and front rim of hat was also reaffixed and there is a piece of his right mutton chop that has been gone for years. There is also a chip on the top right of the top hat but coloring makes me think it is part of the original rather than a later chip? For a piece that is over 100 years old it is still a lovely work of terra cotta art and a lovely addition to any humidor collector. Bernard Bloch was a pre-eminent entrepreneur in the field of ceramic industry and established the famous factory B. Which, in 1920, was renamed to Eichwald Porcelain and Stove Factory Bloch & Co. The facility was based in, what was then, the city of Hohenstein (today Unín). It was characteristic of making richly decorated products with glossy colored glaze. The objects of both artistic and applied character were distributed throughout the Austrian-Hungarian monarchy. These were coffee and tea sets of brown, green, red or bronze color, but also plates, vases and decorative tiles. In 1895, Bernard Bloch extended the field of his activities via purchasing the prosperous firm of C. Teichert (Meissen) based in Eichwald (today the city of Dubí) which was the first on the Czech territory to apply the blue motif of the co-called onion. Apart from porcelain and figural earthenware, Bloch introduced the production of siderite objects, tiles and tiled stoves. Bernard Bloch gained fame mainly by the production of figural tobacco containers and other tobacco products, characteristic of detailed and extremely refined processing. From the German city of Thuringen. After the war, in 1947, the facility was nationalized and affiliated to other porcelain factories as, for example, Royal Dux and Thun to form the company called Duchcovský porcelán (Duchcov Porcelain). The producers continued using the same logo as before the nationalization. In 1958, Duchcovský porcelán was transferred under Karlovarský porcelán (Carlsbad Porcelain). While prices are very competitive they are still mostly negotiable as some funds beat no funds for my class. Have a great day.
