Nude Shell Dancer by Borelli
Very impressive dark patinated bronze sculpture by the Italian artist Stefano Borelli (1894-1962).
Dating from around 1930, this is a striking figure of a nude woman offering up a large open shell and dancing in an apparent trance like state with her head back and eyes closed. A long scarf descends behind from her outstretched arm down to the ground.
Mounted on an ornately shaped dark green marble base and signed in the bronze at the foot of the scarf.
One part of the marble looks to have been repaired at some stage in the past but this has been well executed and is hardly noticeable.
A rare find and a good size at approximately 63.5 cm high.
