Listed artist, designer, and World War II veteran Georges Briard (May 17, 1917 - July 30, 2005), signed Hollywood Regency tole and enamel-painted waste paper bin with lion handles and drop rings, circa 1950s. The waste paper bin is in a rare form and is an early example of his work with his signature novel birdcage design.
Georges Briard (born Jakub Brojdo) moved to the United States from Poland in 1937. When World War II began, Brojdo served as a Russian interpreter for the United States Army until he was discharged. Afterwards, Brojdo studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and worked alongside Max Willie. At this time, Brojdo went by another name...
Jascha but, Wille felt the name was not a good fit for the American market so, Georges Briard was created. Fittingly, Georges Briard's work adorned the display shelves in the Neiman Marcus and Bonwit Teller department stores and became a popular household item. "Georges Briard" is signed on the lower right-hand side of the trash bin.Good Condition - Missing the bottom half of three feet, minor dents and paint loss, minimal rusting inside the bin, and cuts to rim (possibly to hold garbage bag).
