Spelter Figures (other) 2
Toucan Desk Tidy by Franjou
French spelter Toucan holding a nut, this is the larger version and he has glass eyes in typical Moreau style. This is one is however signed Franjou which I believe may have been a pseudonym used by Moreau. It is mounted on a black and white striated marble base that measures 11.25 inches by 7 and the bird has a total height of 5.5 inches (29cm x 18 x 14). The base has a metal pen cup and front pen groove. Condition is very good.

A French spelter panther ashtray, stylishly modelled as a panther on rocks drinking from a pool. The base is of alabaster and measures approx. 7.5 inches by 4.5 inches and the panther sits 4 inches high. I also have a pair of bookends using the same panther (F2230). Email me for more pics if required. Condition is good with the usual expected age wear to the patina along his back and a tiny dent to his shoulder. Close up pics available on request.
Ref: F668 . . . £180
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.

Danseuse Au Voile by Le Faguays
French art deco ceramic craquelier group of nude dancers. This same statue can be seen in the Les Craqueles book on page 84. It was made as a craquelier and also as a terracotta. I have both versions, in fact the terracotta one I have has come from the family of Max Le Verrier. It is unsigned but I guarantee its by Le Faguays, plus I also have the original negative photograph of it from the Le Verrier archives. This large pieces measures 16 inches wide by 7.5 inches deep by 17.5 inches high (41cm x 19cm x 44.5cm). Condition is good with an old crack to the front ladies ankle but this seems to be under glaze and I believe there from new and probably a firing crack.
