‘Lionne en Chasse’
Very special early French Art Deco wooden sculpture of a Lioness.
This is a realistic portrayal of the animal, lean and hungry looking as it sets out on the hunt. A high quality and very tactile piece of animal sculpture from a skilled artist.
The carving has been quite beautifully done and, although the title of the piece has been etched into the base, remarkably the artist has omitted to put his name alongside – such modesty.
The base is fashioned from French Walnut and we think the same wood has also been used for the Lioness, although this is not totally obvious.
Displays really well and an impressive size at around 66 cm in length by 29 cm high. Dating from around 1920.
