Plaques

A selection of plaques, wall mounted and free standing, including terracotta, plaster and metal items.

Folies Bergere plaque by Maurice (Pico) Picaud
This plaque is made of Gesso (plaster) and measures approx. 26 inches square. It is made from a cast which was taken from the entrance porch of the Folies Bergere Building in Paris in 1926, which depicts the dancer Lila Nickolska. The original is of concrete and was designed by Maurice Picaud. These plaques were made in a limited number for commemorative purposes and distributed as gifts to the members of Pico's family, and apparently for sale to patrons of the theatre. The amount made is unknown to me. It is gilded in very high relief, and is mounted in a quality frame of oak which is quite heavy. The condition is good with some minor ageing as one would expect. This is a very rare opportunity to own one of these stunning plaques.
