Jean Filhos for Christofle Silvered Bronze Erotic Letter Opener with Nudes, 1974

About

Midcentury silvered bronze erotic letter opener or bookmark with nudes by the French artist Jean Filhos (1921-2002) This model was created as the official 1974 Christofle Christmas gift (source: Christofle Museum and Archives service) He studied both architecture and sculpture, but after his meeting with Laurens, which affected him deeply, he abandoned his work as an architect to devote himself entirely to sculpture and metalwork. In 1960, he discovered synthetic materials, which were to become, from that moment on, the element through which he most naturally expressed himself. As a creator of jewelry, he produced a series of erotic pieces that created a certain impact. He has been exhibiting his work since 1962, and has participated in many Salons.
