<div>BEQUET</div><div>In 1926, Hubert Bequet began working at the Belgian ceramics manufacturer Auguste Mouzin et Cie (AMC), later renamed La Faencerie de Wasmuel, which operated from 1878 to 1951 in the southwest coal-mining region of Belgium (the Borinage). AMC produced fine quality majolica pieces and in 1910 began mass production of ceramic mantle clocks.</div><div>Bequet took the lessons he had learned at AMC and opened his own ceramics production house in 1934 in Quaregnon. The factory reached the pinnacle of success in 1963 with 150 workers, but eventually closed its doors in April 1985. Bequet was known for colorful, creative high quality ceramic pieces, which were mass produced, often with gold rims and decoration. Early pieces were either unsigned or imprinted with Belgium and a model number. Later pieces are marked with Made In Belgium H. Bequet Quaregnon.</div>
