Art nouveau gilt bronze nude c.1900.



Art Nouveau gilt bronze nude. c. 1900.

  This delightful small bronze would most likely to have been found on a gentleman's desk. Its sinuous and elegant form are very much of the Art Nouveau period. It is probable that this item was originally attached to a marble base for use as a paperweight, and, altough the base is long gone, the sculpture sits well without the support. (A replacement could easily be aquired if desired). 

   This charming small gilt bronze figure is 10cm long and 4.5cm at its widest point. (Measurements approximate). It is in good condition, though lacks its stone base, showing only light wear appropriate to its age. It has no damage and no restoration.
