This is an impressive & stylish piece which uses quality semi-precious hard stones & metal mounts to perfection, combined with use as a picture/photo frame that can accommodate two separate images of either Landscape or Portrait.
At over 2ft in length, it is also a very striking piece of interior display which as can be seen by my photographs, has a charm that is timeless...
The subject of a Stag & Hind provides this remarkable item with additional appeal, as they are arguably a favourable compliment in which to display photographs of loved ones. Two pieces of white marble, one at each end of the base and securely placed offers the above use as intended.
It is an unsigned piece, however its vintage & originality as having been produced in France are sacrosanct. It is undoubtedly in the style/manner of the renowned French sculptor Irénée Rochard 1906-c1984.
The metal mounts have been produced from spelter, a white metal zinc alloy containing lead and or copper instead of bronze. Its use was predominant for producing cheaper alternatives than bronze, for figures, candlesticks and other decorative items, particularly during the Art Deco period., and French spelter is arguably consider to be the finest.
However the natural Earth stones as used for this piece are of the finest quality: Portoro Gold Marble for the base, with White Onyx picture frame supports, and convex inserts to the front edge of the base using Persian Green Onyx and the finest Black Golden Marble, with vertical bands of pure Jet Black Granite, and all to a luxurious finish. This entire piece is sensational in its presence.
There are no chips, cracks or rough edges to any of the marble and the metal mounts are in fabulous vintage condition with good aged patina. The two Art Deco pictures have been used for display purposes only and to provide size & scale to the piece. I am sure that you will agree that this is a delightful Art Deco presentation item onto which to display photographs of your loved ones or suitable pictures of your choice. It is simply sublime.
