The port decanter tag will add a great Art Deco touch to your barware.
Max le Verrier (1891 - 1973) was born in Neuilly-sur-Seine, near Paris, in 1891. From an early age he showed great promise as an artist and sculptor; and after serving in the French army during World War I, he studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Geneva. Upon completing his studies, le Verrier returned to France in 1919, and founded his own studio in Paris. Le Verrier was awarded a Gold medal for his sculptures at the 1925 Paris l'Exposition des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels (the famous exhibition from which the term 'Art Deco' was derived). In 1926, le Verrier opened his own foundry, casting pieces for a wide range of French sculptors of the period. From the outset, he gained a reputation for the very high quality work, exceptional detailing and accuracy of the items that his firm produced. Le Verrier continued working throughout the 1930's - receiving a medal of honor at the Paris International Exhibition in 1937. He reopened his studio after World War II, and continued to sculpt until his death in 1973
Tag: 2" tall x 2 1/2" wide (5 cm x 6 cm).
Chain: 4" long (10 cm).
The decanter tag is in very good condition with light wear and a rich verdigris patina.
