Little Girl Vide Poche

Item Description

Delightful figural trinket tray or ‘vide poche’ with a circular two-coloured marble base, at the rear of which is standing a bashful looking young girl with her head slightly lowered and her arms folded across her chest.  She is looking down into the shallow bowl almost as if she is about to step into it.  Bathtime perhaps?

The figure is cast in bronze and signed at its base by Pierre Lenoir (b. Paris, 1879-1953) who studied under the influential Jules Clément Chaplain.  Lenoir himself was a medal winner at both the 1905 and 1907 Salon des Artistes Français.

This is an unusual, very appealing piece and almost certainly quite rare, dating from around 1920.

The height is  a whisker under 32 cm and the diameter of the marble base around 26.5 cm.
