Curtis Jere Schooner Sculpture

Large and impressive brass sculpture of a sailing ship 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.  Works produced by the company, particularly those of the 1960's and 70's, have become highly praised and sought after today by collectors.  Writer Mitchell Owens wrote a two page article on the history of C. Jere for the November 2010 issue of Elle Decor.  In it he remarks that "Today those pieces are attracting the admiration of leading dealers in vintage chic".  He goes on to note that 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.  This ship sculpture is signed and dated 1976.   It would make a great modern nautical addition to a home, cottage, beach or boathouse.  46" l., 8" w., 41 1/2" h.  American, c. 1976  SOLD
