Large Female Spelter Figures 18

'The Reader' by Chiparus
Gold patinated spelter group of a lady reading a book with a kid. Mounted on a base of black and variegated marble with onyx frontpiece. In good condition although the surface of the marble to the right hand end is pitted, just where the signature should be. Measures approximately 23.5 inches long, 9 inches high and 5.5 inches deep (60 x 23 x 14cm). Can be viewed in the Chiparus book, page 66.

Ref: F1404 . . . £795

Harem Twins
Spelter harem twins, unsigned but I believe by Limousin. Silvered patina, with gilt and red dress detailing. They are mounted on a marble base with pointed ends. Base measures 16 inches long by 4.5 deep and the total height of the statues is 7.5 inches. Condition is good but one little finger shows signs of restoration but as it is at the back it is barely visible unless you look for it, hence £395

Large Olympie by Fayral
This leaping lady is the large version of Olympie, made in the Le Verrier foundry during the 1920's/30's and designed by Le Verrier's friend Pierre Le Faguays. (Fayral was a pseudonym used by Le Faguays). She measures a total height of 20.5 inches (52cm) including the stone base. Total width is 13 inches (33cm) and she is signed under her foot. Condition is good but does have several stone base chips mainly to two corners and some patina wear.

Lady and Deer Group by Chiparus
A large French spelter group by the very famous Demetre Chiparus. The lady has a green patina with bronze dress colouring and is kneeling on a Belgian Black marble base that measures 29.5 inches long, the height is 16.5 and depth is 5 inches (75cm x 42 x 13). It is signed D. H. Chiparus to the right hand end of the base. The condition is very good with some slight ageing and paint loss to the baby deer and minor edge nibbles to the marble. Demetre Chiparus was born in Romania on 16th Sept 1886, he later studied, worked and lived in Paris. He studied under A. Mercier and J. Boucher. He exhibited at the Salon in 1914. He is the most famous of the deco artists and is considered the pioneer of the Art Deco Chryselephantine bronzes technique used during the 1920's and 30's. He made pieces in many mediums including bronze, bronze and ivory (Chryselephantine) spelter, terracotta and plaster.
