Golfer Striker by Lorenzl

Ref: F1346 . . . £475
'Age Primitif' by Chiparus
This huge French spelter male warrior is an unsigned Chiparus, and measures nearly 30 inches long and 22 inches high by 7 inches deep (75x56x18cm). It has an green-bronze patina and the base is of Belgian Black marble. Condition is very good but with a chip to the back corner of the marble and so he is priced accordingly. Email me for more pics.
There is a connection between J. De Roncourt and Chiparus as I have had this piece signed by both artists. It can date this to 1935 as I have the original makers brochure - Societe Francaise des Bronzes and Fontes D'Art.

This French art deco bending bar man is titled Athlete Moderne. I know this as I have an original catalogue from the foundry that made him (see below). The base is made of Belgian black marble.
