Sculptor B. Rezl in Villenauxe

"Sculptor Bohumil REZL, born on 17/09/1899 in Czechoslovakia, arrived in Paris in 1926.
He settled in Villenauxe-la-Grande (French department of Aube, 70km East of Paris), and worked in the faience factory till 1951.
He was a passionate of astronomy and spoke several languages.
His sculpture production is now sought after."

Bohumil Rezl created a few art deco ceramic clock models, often signed "B. Rezl" (see photo below).
They were produced by the "Manufacture de Villenauxe" probably after WWII.
Below are the ones to be seen in our Museum in Brussels.
