Made in the style of the early 1900s, Art Nouveau, Art Deco figurine statues that were made of a combination of bronze metal and ivory, or alabaster. The shy, young girl is wearing a short gown, made of bronze. She is made of a cream colored (not white), composite material that appears to be hand carved but I am not certain. She is affixed to a two tiered base, that is made from a solid piece of gorgeous marble. The total height is 13&1/2 inches, and the base is 4&1/2 inches in diameter. I purchased this at the large antiques Expo in Portland, Oregon, in the 1990s. I do not know her history beyond this, but speculate that it was made in the 1980s. It is a beautiful piece, for sale at a cost of hundreds of dollars less than the early ivory and alabaster figures. I only see one possible flaw, and have included a close up photo of her second toe, on her right foot. The tip of the toe is chipped, which was probably done during manufacturing. I apologize for the high shipping cost, but this quality made piece weighs over 4 pounds, before packing.
