Ceramic Bobsled Group by Bernhard Bloch Studios, 1910



Theodore Schoop for Bernard Bloch Studios A highly enigmatic and stylish majolica ceramic group of three figures on a wooden sled, with a male steering his female and male passenger seated behind, travelling down a snowy incline. With impressed signature T SCHOOP to the base, Austrian, circa 1910. In 1871, Bernhard Bloch established B. Bloch & Company, a pottery located in Eichwald, Bohemia (now the Czech Republic) producing decorative ceramics. The company was one of the few that continued to produce majolica ware after the end of World War I and was known for producing figurative majolica smoker’s companions, jardinières and centrepieces which captured the imagination of the Victorians and led to the production of a range of risqué majolica dishes - unusual considering the sensibilities of the era - but proved to be extremely popular.
