This is such a lovely piece of Art Deco.. This is a valet pin tray for placing coins and keys. The French refer to this as a Poche Vide, which literally means to empty the pockets. Not only practical, but a beauty to grace your nightstand or vanity. This lovely minstral lady is playing her banjo and has the most darling expression. She is bronze? and her face and hands are made of ivorine which is simulated ivory. She rests on a marble base which has an indented bowl for resting your treasures. Very nice with a tiny loss to her decorative headpiece, see photos. This would make an excellent gift for that someone special, maybe you!
