Spelter Male Figures 1

Predominantly Male figural items, or perhaps mixed groups.

Art Deco Statuettes Book
This is the new art deco statuettes book by Alberto Shayo in as new condition.

Ref: M4670 . . . £88

'Age Primitif' by Chiparus
This is the famous Spear Hunter by Demetre Chiparus, although this one apparently unsigned. Green/bronze patinated spelter mounted on black marble base. Original spear included. Exceptionally good condition. 21.5 inches high (54.5cm) and base measures nearly 30 inches long and 7 inches deep (75 x 18cm).
There is a connection between J. De Roncourt and Chiparus as I have had this piece signed by both artists. It can date this to 1935 as I have the original makers brochure - Societe Francaise des Bronzes and Fontes D'Art.

Ref: F1354 . . . £1695

Impressive Fisherman
Why do I never see anything like him on Calais Beach? This is another large French Spelter Male figure. This time a Fisherman in his swimming trunks, pulling in his netted catch. (If only I were a fish!) It is unsigned but probably by Joe de Roncourt, he is 20 inches tall and stands on rocks, which are mounted on a large 26 inch cream onyx and black marble base.

Ref: F369 . . . £695

'Rockman' by Uriano
French spelter man with a light bronze patina levering a lump of marble, mounted on a black and brown marble base. 29 inches (74cm) long and approximately 15 inches (38cm) high - and a really handsome chunky chap! Signed to the base - Uriano.

Ref: F512 . . . £795

The Hero by Uriano
French spelter figural group - a signed piece by Uriano. The figures have a bronzed patina and are mounted on a black marble base with onyx front intersection panels. Condition is very good with a few minor age related marble nicks. The spelter figures are exceptionally crisp. Total height is 19 inches and the base measures 29 by 6 inches (48 x 74 x 15cm). I recently sold the clock version of this figure for the filming of 'And Then There Were None' - featured on BBC in December 2015.

Ref: F1327 . . . £995

Large Slab-Man by 'J. De Roncourt'
This is a big signed spelter male 24 inches tall pulling a slab of fossilised marble up a wedge shape Portorro marble base which is 27 inches in length. A lovely piece in excellent condition.

Ref: F299 . . . £995

'Hervor' Man
A large and handsome male figure chopping a tree stump (or his foot if he's not careful), with an axe. He is made of spelter and is approximately 23.5 inches tall, with a green-grey patination and a yellow loin cloth. A very powerful piece, which is signed by the artist 'HERVOR' on the enormous 30 inch marble base. This is a very unusual figure that I have never had, nor seen before.

Ref: F408 . . . £995

The Warrior
Large French spelter male warrior, unsigned but very much in the style of Bouraine. Measures approx. 34 inches by 14 inches high. In excellent original condition.

Ref: F1663 . . . £1,495

Athlete Moderne by De Roncourt
This French art deco bending bar man is titled Athlete Moderne. I know this as I have an original catalogue from the foundry that made him (see below). The base is made of Belgian black marble. Base measures 7 inches deep by 28.5 inches long and the total height of the statue is 21 inches (17.5cm x 73cm x 53cm). Signed J. De Roncourt to the end of the base. Condition is good with just a few tiny marble nicks and a chip to one corner as one would expect after 80+ years plus some minor patina wear.

Ref: F1970 . . . £1,195

Athlete Moderne by J. De Roncourt
