The plaques here offered for sale are amongst the few sculptural works by Lebeau. Apart from two tombstones and a portrait in relief for private commissions, Lebeau is known to have designed various sculptural and decorative elements for the Asta film theatre in The Hague in 1920 - 1921. For this commission, Lebeau partly re-used designs he made several years earlier for a new building of the Socialist Party in The Hague which was never realised. The cockerel being a popular symbol of the socialists, as well as the trade mark of the Pathé film company, it is possible that the plaques here offered for sale originate from the sumptuous Asta Theater interior (dismantled and partly destroyed in the 1930's)
