‘Trophée’ by Le Faguays*

Item Description

The iconic Art Deco male figural group titled ‘Trophée’ sculpted by Pierre Le Faguays circa 1925.  This was one year after Paris hosted its second Olympic Games.

Depicting three super-fit male athletes with the victor supported high on the shoulders of the runners up. He’s wearing a laurel wreath around his head and in his raised right arm proudly holds aloft a palm frond as a symbol of peace, triumph and eternal life – the palm leaf being one of the most common attributes of victory in ancient Greece.

Cast in high quality art metal at the Le Verrier foundry in Paris, and with a pleasing bronzy-green patina.

Set on a six-sided black marble base bearing the signature of the sculptor and with a height of approximately 64 cm. The base is 34 cm wide and 14 deep.

In good condition with just a little loss to the patina on a couple of the high points.
