Description / Expertise

Rare Art Deco bronze and carved Ivory figure, by one of the greatest of the Art Deco sculptors, Ferdinand Preiss. The Champagne dancer, is one of the rarest, and most lovely of the Preiss works. The exception attention to detail, shown in the carved work, to the head and hands, is breathtaking. Set into cold painted bronze, the figure is in wonderful original condition, having spent its entire in Buenos aires, having been purchased in Paris in the mid 1920s. This enigmatic dancer, dressed in shimmering pale gold, stands upon a gilded bronze base, mounted upon a rouge moulded plinth.
