Deco bronze figurines are those small-scale statues
produced for home decoration in the 1920s and 1930s (and
originally for sale in jewellers and department stores) that
perfectly capture the spirit of the age. This romanticised
time of luxurious transatlantic ocean liner palaces such as
the SS Normandie and RMS Queen Mary, cocktails and flappers,
wild jazz music, Hollywood
and divine decadence was captured in bronze (with ivory)
and spelter sculptures by such famous sculptors as Demetre
Chiparus, Ferdinand Preiss, Josef Lorenzl and Claire Colinet
taking their inspiration from the dancers, cabaret performers,
movie stars and fashion in Hollywood, Paris and Berlin at that
time. Silent footage of Paris nightlife in the 1920s can
be seen here.
These Art Deco sculptures are now sold in major auction
houses throughout the world with many collectors of the style
eager to own figures that appear to be "frozen in time". There
is no doubt that nearly one hundred years after the sculptors
designed these little works of art these exotic ladies will
continue strutting, posing and dancing their way through the
21st Century and beyond!
