This wonderful French silvered bronze Art Deco paperknife is by Lucien Bazor. The front is beautifully detailed with a nude female holding a child aloft. It is signed "Lucien Bazar 1928" on the front foot. There is a wonderful geometric design on the reverse and the central cartouche appears to be engraved "MM". A really tactile and useful object.
