Austrian art deco "Scarf Dancer" figurine by Josef Lorenzl (French, 1875-1939), Patinated metal, mounted on a Brazilian green onyx base

Lorenzl started working as an artist and sculpture in a foundry in Vienna where he became a master in bronze casting and sculptures of some of the best figurines of the Art deco period. During the war Lorenzl worked with spelter and designed many figurines, most pieces were not signed. Some figurines where incorporated into clocks, lamps and lighters amongst other things. Lorenzl also made sculptures of dancing girls and naked young ladies with scarfs, such as this example. Metal was becoming scares at this time so many sculptures turned from bronze to making sculptures in spelter.
