Seduction by Le Faguays
This truly stunning spelter group was made by the Le Verrier foundry during the 1930's, was designed by the famous Pierre Le Faguays, who's pseudonym was Fayral and bears the foundry stamp of Le Verrier. The base is of Belgian Black marble and measures 26.5 inches (67cm) long including the overhanging legs, while the total height is approximately 9 inches (23cm), and the depth is 5.5 inches (14cm). This statue is now rarely available, and the last one I had was several years ago. Condition is very good with a good dark green patina but there are several small chips to the marble base.
