A pair of Art Deco, bronze bookends depicting neoclassical female figures looking towards each other and holding flowers, cross legged on stepped white veined black marble bases. Each base is signed 'Le Faguays', After Pierre Le Faguays.
Pierre Le Faguays (1892-1962) was a French sculptor who was inspired by the statues of Tanagra. He specialised in sculptures of females and in particular, dancers. He was good friends with Max Le Verrier who produced many of his pieces at the Verrier Foundry using the lost wax process.
