ERTE Collectibles Figurines
(Trenton Ontario Canada)
'ERTE' - Artist and Stage Designer
ERTE Collectibles Figurines:- I recently purchased three ERTE figurines. At the time I had no idea who ERTE was. I figure most people outside of the art world are the same as me! ISIS had the ends of three fingers missing, so I went on the net to find someone who could possibly repair them.
To my surprise I found someone within 15 miles of my home. This man has the passion, innovating qualities of the likes I have never seen.
He repaired the fingers and also seen some of ERTEs work.
These figurines are Franklin Mint reproductions. I sold the figurines but they did there job, they opened my eyes and mind to how many great people there are that the vast majority know nothing about. They also made me a friend to the man who does unbelievable repairs, and the new owner.
I am sure will display them as they should be.

Thanks for taking the time and trouble to write up the story of your Franklin Mint Erte collectible figurines. Great work!
Wouldn't it be great to have a page on your repair man too?! He sounds a fascinating individual. If he is a bit publicity shy, don't force the issue, but it would be a great story on him (his skills, how he learned them, what he does etc etc) for this section. I'm sure our visitors would appreciate this kind of story.
I think Erte was one of the most talented individuals of the 'Art Deco' era.
