Art Deco Bronze Statue of a 1920/30's Female Dancerst001
This is a beautiful Art Deco style bronze statue by the German sculpture, J. Philipp (Johann Philipp Ferdinand Preiss, 1882-1943). As you can see from the photos, this late 20th century cast of the original is signed by the sculpture and stamped with the seal of the foundry where it was cast, "Garanti Paris J.B. Deposee".
She stands 58 cm tall and weighs a hefty 6.5 Kg (approx 14 lbs). She is superbly cast and sits atop a pink and black marble socle.
Preiss is regarded as one of the greatest sculptures of the Art Deco era and you can read a little more about him here if you like.
