For sale here is a HUGE vintage 1960s handmade mixed metals copper and bronze modernist Flower sculpture by Jeré of Los Angeles, California. These metal flower sculptures by Jeré look amazing in large modernist pottery vases, or even just by themselves casually placed on a shelf or table! Jeré was the trade name for designer Jerry Fels who, in the 1950s, had designed copper and copper enamel handmade modernist jewelry for his companies Matisse and Renoir. In the 1960s as the demand for copper jewelry waned, Fels, and his brother in law Curtis Freiler, decided to branch out into handmade decorative objects including sculpture. This example is probably from the late 1960s during the 'flower power' peace movement of 1967-68 or thereabouts. The spiky copper flower section measures 5-1/2" diameter by 2-1/2" high, and is at the end of a bronze 'stem' measuring 7" long, and has two bronze 'leaves' that are both 5-1/2" long by 3" wide. Total weight for the sculpture is 227 grams. Unmarked, but no doubt by Jere as I've had the exact same one before that was signed, and it's a pretty well known design by him. Both the leaves show some previous bending which doesn't detract in the least when on display. Excellent vintage condition with just fine light wear and some spots of tarnish as shown - please view the photos, read the description, and ask all questions prior to purchase. I am open to reasonable offers from serious buyers.
