Futuristic Art Deco Style Lady On The Wall Plaster – Chalk Ware Sculpture Figurine
Ever since my early youth, I have always admired Art Deco sculptures, designed by the greats such as Lorenzl and Chipparus, most of which have been far beyond by means in terms of their expense... And so it was that I turned to more affordable examples, using spelter and Ivorine rather than bronze & real ivory and others which had been casted from plaster & chalk from original moulds... I was not the only one. Many a famous maker produced these items, to make them more accessible to the masses... much the same as `costume' jewellery for example, which replicates precious jewels using semi-precious stones & plated metal alloys rather than say platinum or solid gold... The beauty of each remains the same in my own opinion, and it also allows opportunity for all to possess a faithful interpretation of highly a valued object...
This `Lady upon the Wall' is one such example, which allows opportunity to cherish at exceptional low cost, without losing the undeniable eye-catching appeal of its marble & bronze original of the 1920s. This piece dates from the 1950s and yet it has lost nothing of the Art Deco style and it is a very graceful study, using cast plaster or chalk, which has then been hand painted using futuristic metallic shaded colours, which wonderfully replicate the cold painted silvered-bronze of her original equivalent.
It is a wonderful study of an almost androgynous figure which displays much movement from each and every angle, with pure Art Deco style and it has the same strength as say stone-cast or ceramic.
No photograph can capture size or scale of any piece (no matter what it is) however as plaster-sculptures are, this piece is restrained and can happily sit upon a narrow mantle shelf for example, as it is perfectly sized and proportioned. The base is measures 4.5 x 3 inches, and with a total height of 10 inches, provides this figurine with numerous display possibilities... It truly is a gem and it is offered to you here in perfect condition, at low cost for your investment and for your collection.
