Mid-Century Modern Oval Sunburst and Bird Wall Sculpture Attributed to C. Jere

About

Handsome steel, copper and brass Mid-Century Modern wall sculpture depicting an oval sunburst with birds attributed to C. Jere; however, this one is unsigned. In wonderful vintage condition with no outstanding flaws, circa 1960s-1980s. Not a flock of seagulls! But a great flock of geese flying in front of an abstract sunburst! This is an awesome Mid-Century Modern wall sculpture comprised of steel, the sunburst; copper and brass, the birds. It is unsigned but done in the style of and attributed to Curtis Jere or C. Jere, who is not a single artist but is a nom-de-plume for a group of artists working for Artisan House which included Curtis Freiler and Jerry Fels. Before founding Artisan House these two had built a costume jewelry business which sold under the names of Renoir and Matisse, two well-known names of mid-20th century costume jewelry. Artisan House was sold and resold and remains in business today. The C. Jere sculptures and metal work were distributed by Raymor, a well-known name in Mid Century collectibles, and sold at Gump’s in San Francisco and other upscale retail establishments. Jerry Fels died 11/5/07 and Curtis Freiler, his brother-in-law passed 7/22/13 at a ripe old age of 103; but, their legacy lives on in these fabulous sculptures. This one should be on your wall. Sculpture: • Height 20 inches • Width 38 inches • Depth 5 inches • Weight 5 pounds Boxed size: • Height 26 inches • Width 44 inches • Depth 11 inches • Weight 10 pounds.
