An Art Deco statue c. 1930, spelter, by Gilbert, France,
mounted on an extravagant marble and onyx base. This sculpture
is depicting either the actress Louise brooks or the more famous
at the time Colleen Moore.
Probably in one of the most iconic staues of the Art Deco era,
with her bobbed hair and classic pose this really is an
outstanding sculpture; pure Hollywood!
Above is an original trade photograph from a 1930's
Silvin - Paris catalogue and the finish on this particular figure
was known at the time as "Décor Moderne".
