signed ‘Chapelle Nancy’ on the bronze and ‘Muller Frères’ on the glass clear glass decorated with colored inclusions by Muller Frères, wrought iron mount by Léon Chapelle, black marble base. height: 37 cm lenght: 53 cm Executed circa 1920 The Muller brothers, founders of the Muller Frères glassworks in Lunéville, are French art glassmakers of the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods. The family includes nine brothers and one sister. They were all trained in the art of glassmaking. The best known are Eugène Muller (1883-1914), Désiré Muller (1877-1952) and Henri Muller (1868- ). The Muller Frères worked with Léon (or Edouard) Chapelle, wrought iron worker from Lay St Christophe who made 14 models of animals according to the catalogs of the time (snail, turtle, pigeon, lion, peacock, elephant, monkey, etc.) but also two other models including a tiger. These pieces were made between 1925 and 1935. The mounts are sometimes in bronze, most of the time signed. The glassware is sometimes decorated with metallic interleaving (Muller patent of 1929), most often with a shiny unsanded decoration. Chapelle also made many small objects such as letter openers, pocket trays etc.
Parrots sculpture by Chaumet
Parrots sculpture by Chaumet
Vermeil, mother of pearl, lapis lazuli, and rock crystal. The parrots are resting on a perch, their heads and feathers in mother-of-pearl monochrome colours. Their bodies and tails are decorated with lapis lazuli motifs. The parrots are resting on a revolving cylindrical base of rock crystal finished with a lapis lazuli terrace.

Marked ‘CHAUMET A925’ Accompanied by designated gouache painting in a frame, signed ‘Chaumet’ and dated 1986. This sculpture has been entered in the archives of Chaumet museum in Paris. Sculpture: 47.5 x 29 cm. Paintings: 84 x 65 cm. In excellent condition. The history of Chaumet has been entwined with the History of France ever since its founding in 1780, in Paris. Indeed, the House of Chaumet very quickly became the official jeweller to Empress Josephine. Its high jewellery savoir-faire has been passed down through generations of jewellers for almost 240 years. Crafted at the very heart of the place Vendôme, the jewellery watchmaking and sculpture creations reflect these exceptional skills and pay tribute to the Parisian style.
