Art Deco Bookends ‘Meditation’*

Item Description

Rarely seen French Art Deco pair of patinated art metal bookends titled ‘Meditation’, cast at the Le Verrier foundry in Paris.

Designed by Pierre Le Faguays circa 1930 and signed with hs pseudonym Fayral, they depict a thoughtful looking young woman, very Art Deco in style, standing with her head slightly bowed.

She has her arms crossed over the top of her long open split gown, her leading leg extended forward with her heel off the ground and, as the title suggests, looks to be lost in quiet thought.

Both marked Le Verrier on the edge of the socle and mounted on a black striated marble base.

Early 1930’s and measuring 20.5 cm high. The bases are fraction under 10.5 cm long by just under 7 cm wide with a protective green baize attached to the underside.   

Ref: 15478
