French Art Deco Figural Silvered
Bronze Sea Bird in Flight Statue
Sculptor: Irenee Rochard
Circa 1920s/30s, France
French Art Deco bronze statue of a
split tailed seabird in flight, swooping down over a crashing wave.
Nice movement and great detail on
this small scale bronze. Two tone finish, the bronze wave
is left in a polished bronze finish, with original patina. The bird
has wonderful detailing on the wings
and feet and is finished in the original silvering, over
bronze-original patina intact.
This bronze looks beautiful on all sides and is perfect to display
on a small table or vanity.
Signed in the bronze wave: I. Rochard. Mounted on the original solid
black marble base.
Irenee Rochard was a well know
French sculptor in the art deco period.
She favored animals and was a prolific sculptor.
