ENQUIRE ABOUT THIS ITEM...

'Zodiac' bookends by Paul Dupré-Lafon

Two highly unusual glass bookends designed by Paul Dupré-Lafon (1900 - 1971), the heavy glass panels inscribed with signs of the Zodiac in gold, black and red enamel and surrounded by a typical Art Deco limed-oak border section and plinth. French, circa 1930s.

Length: 6 inches (15 cms).

Paul Dupré-Lafon (1900-1971) was a revered furniture designer and interior architect. He started his conspicuously successful relationship of three decades with Hermès in 1929 and his style – often grand in scale and geometric in form – found many admirers among the elite. Dupré-Lafon, whose soubriquet was ‘decorateur des milliardaires’ preferred patronage, favouring unique private commissions to Salon appearances or the arena of exhibitions.
