Fayral Bookends ‘Extase’*
Pair of Art Deco bookends signed Fayral (pseudonym of Pierre le Faguays) and cast in their superior grade of art metal at the Le Verrier foundry in Paris.
Titled ‘Extase’ – meaning Ecstasy – and depicting young girl temple dancers, dressed in rather ornate Egyptian looking skirts, kneeling with their arms outstretched. Their state of ecstacy is apparent as they lean back with their eyes closed, totally lost in the moment.
Patinated in a dark bronze shade with green highlights, and mounted on striated black marble bases, they are in excellent condition.
Dating from circa 1930 and measuring around 11 X 7 cm. The height is 16.5 cm.
