Lavroff Bronze Panther*
Patinated bronze panther sculpted by Georges Lavroff.
This is a stunning figure from a supreme artist who has modelled the animal moving stealthily forward in as sleek and slinky a posture as one could wish to see. Keeping low to the ground and stretching its limbs to move as silently as possible, its slow stride has been incredibly well captured.
Signed G. Lavroff in the bronze and showing the number 9199.
Originally made around 1930 and mounted on a curved and polished black slate base measuring 51 cm wide. The height is approximately 12.5 cm.
