‘Dancer’ by Dorothea Charol
A lovely cold-painted bronze and ivory figure simply titled “Dancer” by the Russian artist Dorothea Charol (1889-1963).
Cast and carved as a young female dancer raised on one foot, she swivels on her onyx base which is unusually decorated with a corrugated diadem, inset with coloured pastes.
The ivory is in good clean condition with just a couple of the usual faint hairlines. There is good colour still on the bronze with a little light rubbing in places. The onyx base has a small chip to one lower edge. These faults are mentioned purely for accuracy and do not, in our opinion, detract from the beauty of this piece on display.
Dating c. 1920 and with a height of 37.5 cm.
