Mergier was one of the great metalworkers and enamelists working in France in the high style we now call Art Deco. The newly reopened Le Musee des Arts Decoratifs in Paris, for example, includes a suite of furniture commissioned by Jacques Ducet and executed by Mergier along with Pierre Legrain and Marcel Coard in the 1920s. Like many of his contemporaries, Mergier was influenced by Classical and African art, and this later piece from the 1950s -- with its Greek figure blowing a horn made from a seashell -- shows that influence still. Mergier's mastery of copper and enamel has not diminished, and here he positions his figure on a large, irregular panel of modern board! This piece is signed and dated.
