Property from an Important Estate

Claude Lalanne

Jules & Jim


2015

numbers 8A and 8B from an edition of 40

gilt bronze, patinated steel

each monogrammed C.L., impressed LALANNE, dated 2015 and respectively numbered 8/40A and 8/40B

number 8A: 2½ x 2 x 4⅞ in. (6.4 x 5.1 x 12.4 cm)

number 8B: 2⅜ x 1¾ x 5⅝ in. (6 x 4.4 x 14.3 cm)

Overall in very good condition. The bronze surfaces throughout both works with some surface irregularities inherent in the making, which contribute to the naturalistic quality of the works. The bronze throughout both works with some occasional extremely minor surface scratches and abrasions, consistent with gentle handling, and with some instances of minor pitting and some minor traces of verdigris concentrated to the front paws of both works. The steel balls of both works are in very good condition with very light surface wear and each with minor traces of dried adhesive residue adjacent to the paws, only visible upon close inspection. The work numbered 8A with a small tear approximately 1/2 inch short of the end of the tail, stable and likely inherent to production. The work numbered 8B with a few minor traces of chalky residue under the proper right rear leg. This same work displays some extremely minor movement at the connection of the mouse paws to the steel ball, stable. An endearing and charismatic work by Claude Lalanne.
