It is a sculpture of a bronze lady in beautifully flowing period dress with beautifully carved faux ivory head and hands.

The lady appears to be of Asian extraction……judging by her facial features.

Either side of her are 2 bronze Borzoi dogs……her hands reach out towards the dogs.

The detail on this piece is incredible……right down to her painted lipstick and fingernails.

The sculpture is mounted on a heavy marble plinth…..the main portion of the plinth is jet black marble……but it is edged in sections of various colored marbles in a very art deco design.

The piece is not signed…..which is a pity……but it was obviously made by a top Art Deco sculptor as is evident from its FANTASTIC QUALITY AND DETAIL !!!

This is a VERY RARE and HIGHLY DESIRABLE high-end piece of Art Deco !

You will not find another like it and in such GREAT CONDITION !!

GORGEOUS patina on the lady and dog consistent with its age.

This piece could be French …..or American ??? Personally, I’m leaning towards French because the borzoi dogs were popular with the French Socialite class in the 1920’s and France had a number of Colonies in Southeast Asia. It could possibly have been made on commission…..thus explaining the Asian features of the Lady and the fact that it is not signed !!

ART DECO: Art Deco (/ˌɑːrt ˈdɛkoʊ/), or Deco, is an influential visual arts design style that first appeared in France just before World War I [1] and began flourishing internationally in the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s before its popularity waned after World War II.[2] It took its name, short for Arts Décoratifs, from the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes (International Exposition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts) held in Paris in 1925.[3] It is an eclectic style that combines traditional craft motifs with Machine Age imagery and materials. The style is often characterized by rich colours, bold geometric shapes and lavish ornamentation.

Deco emerged from the interwar period when rapid industrialisation was transforming culture. One of its major attributes is an embrace of technology. This distinguishes Deco from the organic motifs favoured by its predecessor Art Nouveau.

Historian Bevis Hillier defined Art Deco as “an assertively modern style [that] ran to symmetry rather than asymmetry, and to the rectilinear rather than the curvilinear; it responded to the demands of the machine and of new material [and] the requirements of mass production”.
During its heyday, Art Deco represented luxury, glamour, exuberance and faith in social and technological progress.
