Genuine 1920's art deco nude flapper sculpture - with naked lady holding a tray. She is painted in black polychrome paint and could be used for so many things like a vanity dish, bon bon, candy or knick-knack tray. Not dissimilar from some of the cabaret and night-club acts of the day, she is dancing and holding out a tray (she wouldn't have been naked in the shows LoL.) Beautiful detail and execution, with classic art deco design and lines. He hair is swinging with her movement. Unsigned, but fabulous and large. Included photos of some other art deco sculptures I have in the shop.
CONDITION: Excellent antique condition without damage or repairs. The is some very minimal wear to the nude herself but does not distract IMHO. Easy to touch up but I do not believe she needs it and I would not do anything to her. The tray she is holding shows signs of usage.
SIZE: She stands 8 1/2 inches x 7 inches deep x 3 3/4 inches wide

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 a classic movie as a young girl, and watched Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor 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.
