‘Danse Paienne’ signed Derenne*
Art Deco green patinated figure of a nude young woman dancing and holding a pair of discs which she will toss in the air and catch as she dances.
Cast at the Le Verrier foundry in Paris during the 1930’s using their own superior grade of art metal.
Signed Derenne on the socle, one of the pseudonyms sometimes used by Marcel Bouraine.
Mounted on a black marble base and measuring a fraction below 26 cm high.
A little loss to the patina as is so often the case with these old figures but otherwise in good overall condition.
