Large Olympie by Le Faguays
This is one of my large 'Olympie' statues, made by the Le Verrier foundry in the 1930's and signed Fayral. Fayral was a pseudonym used by Pierre Le Faguays. This lovely lady measures 20 inches (51cm) total height including the stone base. The total width measures 13 inches by 4.5 deep (33 x 11.5cm). The lady has a green patina and is signed under her foot Fayral. Condition is not perfect as there are some chips to the stone base. Hence . . .

Fan Dancer by Limousin
Pretty spelter lady in a feather hemmed skirt, holding a fan above her shoulders. The fan shows two Icarus Cherubs on it. She is mounted on a signed portorro marble base that measures 12 inches by 5 and her total height is 9 inches (30cm x 13 x 20). Condition is good with some minor wear to the patina.

'Group Atlante' by De Marco
Take a look at this stunning piece, the ultimate Diane, measuring a huge 38 inches
across the base. The base is of a granite stone and the lady measures
approximately 30 inches to the tip of her bow. Although this is a spelter group,
one could be forgiven for believing it was a bronze, as the weight and
quality are that of a bronze. It is very similar to figures produced by the
Le Verrier foundry by artists such as Fayral. This is a HUGE Deco statement
at a reasonable price! If this piece is too long for the sideboard or mantle piece you have in mind, then email me as I have 2 others of this same De
Marco Diane but without the leaping Ibex, and so the bases are shorter.

Sur la Passerelle by Menneville
French spelter and ivorine (phenolic) lady with dinanderie patterning to her green dress. She is feeding a baby deer. Her official and original title is - Sur la Passerelle. I know this as I have an originally foundry catalogue with the information in it. The foundry that produced it was the Silvin foundry in Paris. Silvin was the cousin of Costin another Parisian foundry producing the Menneville, Rochard and De Roncourt statues during the early 1930s. This statue is signed on the right hand end of the base and I believe Menneville was a pseudonym used by Ugo Cipriani. It measures 31.5 inches long by 14.5 inches high (80cm x 37cm). Now a rare find in such good condition.
