BookEnds Art Deco a pair of Sculptures by Max Le Verrier, on marble bases, Signed by the Artist

Louis Octave Maxime LE VERRIER was born in Neuilly sur Seine, France on January 29, 1891-1973

Circa, 1925 - 1930, époque Art Déco

Extraordinary and rare pair of handmade Bookends by the world famous French Sculptor, 'Max LeVerrier' from his Paris Atelier.

Freaturing 2 elegantlsy seated Ladies reading a book with each sculpture mounted on a period marble base. All in original and wonderful conditon with no losses either to either Figure or to each Marble Base.

Difficult to properly explain the rarity of such a pair of Sculptures, considering they are about 100 years old and, still in such excellent condition which is a testament to the care and attention paid by previous owners.

Both Practical as Bookends on a shelf or on a piece of Furniture, and quite Decorative.

The Sculptor, Max Le Verrier is well known to me as I have collected his wide variety of Art Work for nearly 30 years.

I have other examples of his work both listed on my Site and in my Collection, not yet listed.
