An Art Deco spelter statue by Gilbert, France c 1930, 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 statues 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".
