French Bronze Young Girl Sculpture - HENRI ALPHONSE NELSON - Art Nouveau Bronze Art Object - Parisian Listed Artist
A beautiful, antique French bronze sculpture by Henri Alphonse Nelson of a sweet, long-haired girl. This young girl has a classic Art Nouveau look, and is a beautiful art object. Lovely details throughout and a very heavy piece. The bust is signed A. Nelson and also has the letter D stamped in the bottom. The only other one of its kind I've been able to find is of a gilded version on a marble plinth. I don't know where the marble went from this piece but isn't really necessary for display purposes. I can not guarantee that this is a genuine piece, but I have never seen copies of his work. This will have to be shipped via courier so it an be fully insured. I have not had this piece authenticated so it is being sold as 'attributed to' but way well be the real thing, I have no clue.
CONDITION: Excellent antique condition without any damage, repairs or wear
SIZE: She stands 12 1/2 inches tall x 10 inches wide and 5 1/2 inches deep
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.
