Hand carved white alabaster figure of a smiling nude young woman reclining languidly at the water’s edge.
She’s a pretty young thing, very 1920’s, and looks completely relaxed as the waves break around her.
The figure is mounted on a marbled dark orange coloured base which is also formed from a type of alabaster. This houses the concealed lamp holder and, when switched on, the light shines through both the top and the base.
The overall size is approximately 42 by 17 cm with a height of around 30 cm.
An extremely elegant sculpture with lovely detail, unsigned so unfortunately the sculptor is unknown. However, we believe it to be French, dating from the Art Deco period circa the early1920’s.
