ABOUT

Awesome flock of seagulls! This birds in flight brass and black marble sculpture is in the style of Curtis Jere or C. Jere. It is more petit than most of the mid-century modern bird sculptures by that company and will look wonderful in your bookcase.

Curtis Jere 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. Make this one in the style of theirs yours.
