A super rare and unique 1920s art deco nude sculpture and incense burner. The naked flapper is reclining on a very detailed oriental carpet - rug with the incense pot next to here. Wonderful 1920's sculpture and risque decorative accent. Signed in the edge of the ruffled carpet A. R. and I can't make out the rest. It is made of patinated, bronzed metal. The sculpture is on little button feet which lifts it off any surface. Truly wonderful piece - and one of two.
CONDITION: Excellent antique condition without damage, repairs. The incense pot has been used more compared to the other one but can be cleaned and retouched to look like new.
SIZE: This is a heavy piece that measures 5 1/8 inches long x 3 inches wide and 2 1/2 inches tall.
Andrea, your store is a wonderful treasure trove and your knowledge and class are of a scholarly collector.
I am a university research professor with an eye for detail. I have never seen any vendor with your level of exquisite scholarship. Just like your fine objets d'art, your descriptions are crafted with masterful finesse; it is such a pleasure reading them and it is also a great learning experience. Thanks again! Patrick
From the first time I watched Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor as a young girl, I have loved art deco design, art, fashion and jewelry. So bold and beautiful, and so different from anything that came before it. Art deco changed social and design sensibilities forever. A lifetime collector of high quality antiques and vintage, I started by making contacts, researching and learning. Picking the best of the best, I live with art deco and vintage decor and used to wear the fashions of the day. To say that I feel in love is an understatement. I reveled in the fact that I was able to reflect my unique style and sensibilities with a marriage of old and new. What you see in my shop is my personal collection. Since I was in my teens I have bought what pleases me, what I find beautiful and unique, and the things that speak to me on a creative level. I hope that you can see and feel the passion and love that I feel for antiques and vintage pieces and share with you. You will find art deco, collectible and vintage fine art paintings, original illustrations and magazine covers, home decor, marble, alabaster and metal lamps, nude flapper table lamps, sterling silver decorative accents and tableware for the home and entertaining, designer and estate jewelry and fine vintage watches in my shop.
