1930s Bronze Plate with Nautical Theme • Signed - P Le Faguays
Item #1085 SOLD
This spectacular and very heavy brass and bronze plate with a deep, rich patina is actually more of a sculpture than it is a plate. Depicted is a nautical scene of a majestic and beautiful sailing ship surrounded by seven seagulls. It was created and signed by Pierre Le Faguays (1892-1925).
Pierre Le Faguays was born in Nantes, France in 1892. He was not only a talented sculptor, but also a leading member of the committee for the 1925 Paris Exhibition. He was awarded a medal of honor for his work in 1927. His best friend, Max Le Verrier (of the Le Verrier Foundry) made most of (if not all of) his pieces.
