A small iron deer sculpture with movable parts, by Jean Touret for Atelier Marolles. This piece was part of a large estate of Touret items, bought directly from the sons of the owners. The Atelier Marolles was commissioned to furnish the house, from a dining table and sideboard to smaller items like this one. The items were made in the 1950s, under the direction of Jean Touret.

Jean Touret (1916 - 2004) began a career as a painter and then turned towards woodcarving. All his life he continued his aesthetic research by experimenting unconventional use of a variety of materials: wood, paper, copper, zinc, bronze, plexiglass, ceramics and concrete. We have several other pieces by Touret and Marolles available.
