Dauvergne Exotic Bird Lady*
Very Art Deco lady posing and holding aloft a pair of exotic long-tailed birds.
Our girl is modelled partially kneeling on a stylish marble and onyx base with one arm raised and the other held in front of her. On each hand perches a curly-tailed tropical bird with wings fluttering. She’s wearing a short, figure hugging gold dress which contrasts well with the green patination of her face and body.
This is a nicely balanced and well made sculpture by the French artist J. Dauvergne whose surname is inscribed in the marble.
Dating from 1925-30 and around 41 X 13 cm with a height of just under 55 cm.
