Villeroy & Boch Cadiz
Villeroy & Boch “Cadiz” was produced by the Luxembourg Faiencerie c1970 until end of 1984. It is a beautifully decorative design in blue and yellow on a white ground reminiscent of Spanish and Portuguese ceramic tiles (Azulejos)
The elegant and streamlined forms are from the “Milan” series of shapes designed by Ludwig Scherer – The shapes used with several other popular Villeroy Boch designs in this era – such as Acapulco, Izmir & Granada amongst others.
The very attractive repeat pattern in blues and yellow on white is of course another by Christiane Reuter. Christiane joined Villeroy Boch in the 1960s as their chief designer and continued there for decades – but I have been unable find out much about her work, including a comprehensive list of her designs. ( I did have a German text document about her work, sent to me by a reader of this site many years ago, but frustratingly cant now locate it)
