Le Verrier ‘Danseuse aux Boules’*
Hard to find Le Verrier Art Deco figure ‘Danseuse aux Boules’ dating from the late 1920’s to early 30’s.
Green patinated spelter figure of a slender nude girl dancing whilst holding two dark amber coloured balls in her hands. The young lady, sporting a short and very Deco hair style, has her eyes partially closed as she performs her dance routine. She is posing on tiptoe, with one leg raised, and quite how she’s keeping the ‘boules’ from dropping to the floor is a bit of a mystery.
Signed on the socle Denis which, it has been suggested, was possibly another of Max Le Verrier’s pseudonyms.
One or two minor patination marks but otherwise in good condition.
The height is approximately 27 cm.
