Curtis Jere; Birds in Flight Sculpture

It's been a little while since we featured a piece by Curtis Jere.  The Curtis Jere design house was founded in California in 1963 and produced sculptural works ranging from the representational to the highly abstract.   Writer Mitchell Owens wrote a two page article for the November 2010 issue of Elle Decor about the history of C. Jere and the increasing popularity amongst collectors.  After launching in 1963, Jere sculptures were distributed by Raymor, a cutting edge studio in New York City, and retailed at Gump's in San Francisco and other high end retailers in several major cities across the U.S.  While we've featured quite a few C. Jere pieces over the years, this is one of only a couple of table top sculptures we've had in the shop.  The sculpture depicts two large birds in flight.  The birds are brushed and patinated brass and the base is quartz.  It is signed and dated.  22" h., 15" w., 10" d.  American, c. 1981  SOLD
Condition:  Very good vintage condition.
