Description

Wonderful sculpture of a stylised fish (possibly Catfish) in patinated bronze by JP Le Verrier (1922-1996), son of the great French sculptor Max Le Verrier. The casting is crisp and clear as revealed in the individual scales, gills, eyelids and lips of the fish. Probably designed as an ashtray originally, this charming piece can equally well be used to hold small items of jewellery, trinkets or other small objects. Cast by the Le Verrier foundry in Paris. It is surprisingly heavy for its size and measures 9cm high by 9cm long. It is fully signed JP Le Verrier.

Condition Report
