Uriano - The Hunter
A nice original green patinated spelter man on grey marble with Belgian black marble surround, in very good condition with hardly any marble chips and just some slight patina wear to the figure. Measures nearly 30 inches wide and 15 inches high and 8 inches deep. This one unsigned, but by Uriano.
Ref: F2364 . . . £760
Austrian spelter knight on horseback as a striker lighter, with separate cigarette holder in the form of a tree trunk. The base is of wood and is stamped underneath Austria. I believe this is another striker designed by Josef Lorenzl and is possibly Joan of Arc. In excellent condition and with its original striker wand.
Ref: F1157 . . . £175
A large French spelter male figure mounted on a base of Portorro marble, 25.5 inches (64cm) long by 8 inches (20cm) deep and the figure is about 14 inches (36cm) tall.
There is a connection between Cipriani and J. De Roncourt because although this one is unsigned I have had this piece by both artists. Produced in 1935. Very good overall condition with just some usual minor edge nibbles to the marble and a small indentation to his thigh.
