Bookends by Art Deco sculptor Henri Fugere, (1872-1944) C. 1927
Fugere studied with Barrias, Cavelier and Puech and exhibited at the Paris Salon. He was predominantly an art deco sculptor.

Information from page 1174, Bronzes 1800-1930 by Harold Berman.
These are usually described as being Gerdago, who never sculpted these at all. Gerdago never sculpted in spelter.

These were sculpted by Fugere as bookends, at least that is what I have found out after searching books on bronzes, and seeing some photos. They were continued as bookends by the JB Hirsch Foundry who made most of the bookends that found their way in North America.

I am still on the lookout and wanting to buy more when the funds do not escape me.

    Beautiful Pixies! These are the most beautiful items I have seen on Collector's Weekly! Or anywhere! Really, they could not have a better home to live in. Thank you for letting me see them.

    Hirsch usually did a lamp or a clock to go with these, I have a pirate set of a lamp, clock, and one bookend, and the lady in red clock has garnitures that I have seen and am trying to get my hand on, he also did a lamp for the lady in red set that I have seen. Hirsch seems to produce in sets.
