Limousin Lady and Pet Dogs*
A Limousin Art Deco figural group of a very elegant lady with her two faithful dogs. She stands between them, lightly touching their heads while they stand quietly beside her.
This is a superior casting in quality art metal with ivorine detail and is still showing the quite beautiful original patination.
Signed Limousin which was a centre for some top class artistry during the Art Deco era, and this piece was almost certainly originally sculpted by Menneville.
Affixed to a very decorative, oval three-coloured marble and onyx base and measuring around 64 X 17 cm, with a height of 40 cm.
Dating from around 1930, in lovely condition with just a very slight nibble to the black marble on the underside of the left-hand end.
