French Art Nouveau Gilt Bronze Desk Weight by Georges Recipon

A French Art Nouveau gilt and patinated bronze figural sculpture, titled "Porte-bonheure a la muse ou La chance," by Georges Récipon (1860-1920). The desk weight is modeled as a female nude hammering nails into a horseshoe. Ancient tradition held that iron held or stored luck, and so the iron nails in horseshoes are actually what were originally understood to be the source of their luck. This charming figure in Recipon''s work is hammering more nails into a large horseshoe, thereby increasing its luckiness. A similar sculpture is picutred in: Susse Frères: 150 Years of sculpture, 1837-1987, by Pierre Cadet, Paris: Susse Frères, 1992, p. 66, fig. 110.
