French Art Deco spelter and ivorine figure of an elegant lady in a long and ornately decorated gown.
Signed Limousin, this very lovely piece is set on a simple oval black marble base which has been cleverly chosen so as not to compete with the figure for attention.
Superbly painted detail to the lady’s dress which, with its high collar and long sleeves, softly drapes to the floor in very elegant style. The carving of the ivorine has been well executed, giving her soft and gentle features. The hands too are very natural.
Length is a around 40 cm, width a little over 15 and she stands 39 cm high. Dating from c. 1925.
