‘Phalène’ by Fuchs*

Item Description

Art Nouveau spelter figure dating from circa 1910 titled ‘Phalène’ (Night Butterfly) by the renowned Austrian born artist and sculptor Emil  Fuchs (1866-1929).

Showing a slender young maiden wearing a clinging diaphanous dress with a long split to the skirt, and amazing butterfly wings decorated with shooting stars suspended beneath her outstretched arms. On her head is an ornate winged headdress and her long hair tumbles down her back.

Very Art Nouveau with the joyous looking girl appearing to be floating on swirling clouds at the base of the sculpture. 

Signed on the socle E. Fuchs and with a title plaque also affixed.

Further mounted on a circular Rouge Royale marble base.

This is a rarely seen figure in lovely condition with just a little wear to a couple of the high points.  A fraction over 43 cm high to the tip of her outstretched hand.
