Art Deco Nude Tambourine Dancer*
Striking and tall Art Deco spelter figure of a nude girl joyously playing a tambourine.
She looks possibly to be either of north African or middle eastern origin judging by her headdress and jewellery, and is certainly not shy as she proudly shows off her splendid body, while swaying with both arms aloft as she plays.
Patinated in a rich dark bronze-brown colour, she’s standing on a lighter shaded raised lions pelt further decorated with a large flower.
Signed on the base Waagen and around 74 cm in height, with the base approximately 33 X 25 cm.
This is a sculpture with strong visual impact, in good condition with just a few minor age-related marks to the patina.
