This HUGE 1930's Art Deco/Art Nouveau Bronze Nudes & Automobile Plaque is signed E.(doudard) Fraisse. The scene depicts two nude women bending on their knees while holding an automobile (looks to me like a Duesenberg?) on a platter above their heads. There are piles of what look like coins surrounding the two women.
This exquisite plaque comes in a red velvet lined presentation case with tiny hooks to hold it in place.
Measurements are: 10 1/4" long x 7 3/8" wide x 1/4" thick.
The artist/sculptor (1880 - 1945) was quite well known for designing sports-related plaques and medals (and the occasional trophy), but the normal size of such plaques was around 3 - 4 inches and this one, which I've not been able to locate anywhere on the internet including past sale records, is almost 10 1/2 long.
Thanks for looking!
