Marcel Bouraine Art Deco Bronze Bird Bookends

About

These Art Deco bookends by Marcel Bouraine are playful pieces made of silvered bronze and mounted on Portoro marble. They are signed in the circular base M.Bouraine. This figure was also produced as a fancy automobile “mascot”, to be affixed to the hood of a car in the 1920s. Bouraine did glorious sculptures of women often with classical themes such as Diana the Huntress, as well as animals both majestic and whimsical. He has the distinction of being primariy self taught before the war years of 1914-1918 during which he was taken prisoner by the Germans and interned in Switzerland. This was a program by which prisoners of both sides of the war were given a neutral place to recuperate and he produced a public monument in memory of the French Internees, many of which had been severely injured and were unable to return to their homes.
