This spectacular piece is an Art Nouveau Video Poche made of carved ivory and green onyx, attributed to Ferdinand Preiss (ca 1920). The carved ivory figure depicts a woman standing upright with her left leg and arm behind her and her right leg and arm in front of her. The pose is amazing as is the detailed face, fingers, and body. She stands upon a wonderfully colored onyx base, likely a trinket dish. The quality is amazing. This carving is very likely one of Ferdinand Preiss' original works (he was known for bronze, ivory and marble combinations) as some of his smaller pieces went unsigned. A real collector's item and a great investment.
