Large ‘Olympie’ by Fayral*

Item Description

This is the large version of Pierre Le Faguay’s ‘Olympie’ sculpture cast at the Le Verrier foundry in Paris in the early 1930’s.

It’s a stunning olive-greenish patinated spelter figure of an athletic young woman leaping forward with both arms aloft and is so very Art Deco, combining as it does both speed and grace.

The figure fits on to a shaped natural stone base which, with its streamlined look, has been designed to accentuate the subject’s movement. 

Signed Fayral beneath her foot, this being the maiden name of Faguay’s mother and a pseudonym that he often used. 

The overall height is approximately 52 cm and the stone base measures around 26 by 13 cm. The girl’s trailing leg does however extend in the region of a further 6 cm beyond the base.

There are, unsurprisingly, a few minor marks to the patination and nibbles to the stone base but otherwise it is in excellent condition.
