(123 items)

Another metal art deco pixie bookend, these were designed first in 1927 by Henri Fugere. This was a single item which I buy also but usually come in pairs. Fugere was born in 1872 and died in 1944. He studied with Barrias, Cavelier, Peusch, etc and exhibited at The Salon, Paris.

See my other listings of these items in pairs.

This one was all black and the paint job does not seem worn out as much as aged. It has the metal bottom that is painted black probably to look like marble. The figure has a very nice aged paint look which is in excellent shape, nearly unblemished.

    Another beauty Phil ! What is she made of ? How tall ? She makes a great addition to your collection :-)

    Here is one missing her face and book . The book appears to be molded into the hands of your's so how could it be gone ? Also it appears the faces were separate from sculpt as this one is missing her face . Very interesting Phil . I love these girls . I saw a few that sold in pairs in red for $1200 !

    Phil the link I had was for a signed pair , you were wondering if they were still being made . I don't see any mention of these girls being signed other than the one I had a link to :-) I thought that might be clue to the question xoxo

    Hi Phil you know I love that's for all your help that first photo you did for me was going to put them both up there so the difference can be seen but it looks as if they have both changed. Also thanks for fixing the other ones for me. Take really good care you never know you may end up in Cairns Australia sometime & could meet. Life is short you never can tell what will happen. At the moment were I am I cannot put anyone up as no room. until then if there is some other way I can help any of my friends I'll do my best.
  66. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 5 months ago
    You are most welcome Zowie, always glad to help you !~

    That would be great - I am still getting 3 more deliveries of these before Christmas I expect.
  71. Manikin Manikin, 4 months ago
    I will wait till all your expected ones come in and you give me a song . Just sing it to me I will figure out the name of it :-) These are far to wonderful to not have a page for them to share . We are going to get hit with big snowfall they say for next 2 days . I think Alaska is warmer . If you don't see me I left to visit my friend in Australia or South Africa both are having summer right now :-)
