Unique vintage side table Jacques Duval-BrasseurRef nr. 52_5609
Jacques Duval-Brasseur collection table with semi-precious stone inlays. The base of the table is made in the shape of a bronze stag beetle, whose back is decorated with amethyst crystals. The table was custom-made for the collector. The item has belonged to the collector and his family since its inception until today. A large amethyst druse is inlaid in the central part of the table base. There are two markings confirming the authorship of Jacques Duval-Brassel: one signature is next to the druze, and the second is on the body of the beetle. France, circa 1970.Jacques Duval-Brassel is a French sculptor, painter and furniture designer. At the age of 17, he moved from his family to study at the Les Beaux Arts school in Cherbourg, France. Ten years later, he received his degree and began to create his first works with elements of nature and experiment with the combination of various materials. The starting point for the master was 1969, when his works were presented at the Maison & Jardin Galerie in Paris. It was after this that he began to receive large orders from collectors.The unusual style of the master is immediately recognizable. Entomology is at the center of his work: rather naturalistic and detailed figures of scorpions, butterflies, spiders and beetles usually serve as a base for a transparent tabletop, and their bodies are made of bronze and inlaid with semiprecious and ornamental stones. Most of these unusual items were made to order in a single copy or in a limited edition. In addition to an unusual series of works with insects, the master also has series with birds and cold-blooded ones, but it is the entomological theme that is considered the most recognizable. The master's works are exhibited at first-tier auctions such as Christie’s and Sotheby's.
