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.
