Wall Plaques

A selection of wall masks and pockets, mainly in ceramics, but also including terracotta, plaster and metal.

During the deco period there was a huge following for wall ornaments many modelled on Hollywood movie stars of the period, cartoon characters and famous themes of the period. Although many masks were made in the UK during the period, for instance Cope and Company probably produced most of the English masks, along with Beswick, Clarice Cliff, Crown Devon, whilst Leonardi (Leonardine) produced most of the best quality plaster pieces. Czechoslovakia and Austria both produced many high quality masks, some designed by deco sculptors such as Lorenzl, Dakon, Goebel, Royal Dux and Goldscheider. Another less known source of quality masks was the Belgian artist and sculptor Domien Ingles, who produced a range of quality terracotta masks, who's company also produced crackeliers during this period. In my opinion, these masks epitomise the deco period and are therefore essential to creating the art deco interior.

'Diane aux Fougeres' Wall Mirror
Stunning contemporary wall mirror with wooden frame and lower panel depicting Diane the huntress with dog and deer standing amidst ferns. The Diane plaque is made of gesso with silver and gold leaf finish. The original of this plaque was made in 1929 for the Paris Exhibition by Celine Lepage its title is Diane aux Fougeres (Diane with the ferns). I have had it recreated as it is impossible to find an original one. The frame measures 31 inches by 17 (69cm x 43) and is made of dark wood with a mirror backing. Condition is excellent. Email me for closer pics.

S.A.D.E. Wall Plaque
I have recently commissioned an extremely talented artist, to create this large deco plaque, similar to the original design by Marcel Bouraine for the 1925 Paris Exposition des Arts Decoratifs. This wall plaque is made of gesso and applied with either gold leaf or silver leaf. They are professionally framed and mounted in a black satin finish stepped wood frame. It measures nearly 30 inches square (75cm). I have used the original design on my website and company stationery for some time now and have therefore named her Sade - an abbreviation of Sheryl's Art Deco Emporium. I presently have one of each version (gold and silver leaf), but I am hoping to produce a terracotta version later.
I have taken more photographs of these plaques and have made a special page to view them here, but the pictures are larger than normal and so may take some time to open. Email me for more information. These plaques are large and quite heavy (10.5 kg) and would need to be collected, personally or by a shipping agent, as they are too fragile and heavy to post.
