Cerabel is a company with its roots in the 1800s and the foundry of Porcelaine de Badour. In 1934 it became “Cerabel”, the Belgian Ceramic Society and introduced stylized figures in dynamic poses  like the set of Four Jazz Musicians  including singer in a top hat, guitarist, accordionist and saxophone player. Rendered in high glaze, they make a striking  group of individual statuettes  which you can arrange any way you choose  on a mantle or shelf for display.
