eBay Find of the Day: C. Jere Wall Sculpture

Did you see that Jonathan Adler has reissued a few of the super-funky midcentury metal wall sculptures by C. Jere?

The reissued Raindrops Sculpture, above, is made from antiqued brass and measures a whopping 66 inches wide by 34 inches high. The price? $1,500.

There's a similar aluminum Raindrops Sculpture, above, on Wright Now right now for $2,600 -- and a chrome version, below, on 1stdibs for $4,800. Clearly, Curtis Jere is hot -- and highly collectible. (Now might be a good time to raid your parents' attic or basement for remnants of their own super-fab '70s decor. You may actually find something really valuable!)

The original Raindrops Sculpture pictured at top and at right, which is up for auction on eBay, is smaller -- 36 inches wide by 27 inches tall -- and is signed by the artist. Current bid: $255.

Leah, do you (or does anybody else) know of a good collection of Jere pieces, or a catalogue? Seems like that would be a worthy project....
