Beautiful set of satyr's bookends.
Late 19th century.
Nestor Émile Joseph Carlier was born in Cambrai on 3 January 1849 and died in Paris on 11 April 1927, is a famous French sculptor from the 19th century.
Depiction of two little boys naked fauns, satyr boys, with both a pan flute and a wreath of grape vines on their heads.
They have beautiful furry goat legs and both stand with their arms and hands bent forward to forcefully support the books.
Both sculptures are made of dark bronze-green patinated zamak with beautiful lived antique patina and they are fixed on hefty marble pedestals.
Both marble pedestals are signed CARLIER.
Nice condition with slight traces of age on the patina and on the marble.
Tiny chips on the marble pedestals, nothing disturbing
See the last series of photos for a clear impression of the condition.
Highest point about 20 cm.
Marble pedestals measure approx. 14 x 9 x 2 cm.
Total weight approximately 2475 grams.
Will be very carefully packaged and shipped by insured and registered post, Colissimo.
