'La Poesie' by Bareau
Large Art Nouveau bronze by the French artist Georges-Marie-Valentin Bareau (1866 - 1931). Her title is La Poesie (Poetry). She sits holding a scroll, obviously writing poetry but the quill may not be original to the piece. A top quality bronze by a top artist with fine detailing. Signed Georges Bareau and stamped with the foundry name F. Barbedienne Fondeur. In excellent condition. It measures 19.5 inches (49.5cm) high, base measures 7.5 inches square. In 2008 this same statue sold for £6000 in Sotheby's.

Ref: B270 . . . £3,995

Sirene by Zolie
Very pretty signed nouveau lady bust made of coppered and bronzed spelter, measuring 5.5 inches high (14cm) and entitled Sirene. The quality of this bust is exceptional and the condition is good with just a couple of small dinks to her breast and hair curl.

Ref: F1268 . . . £395

'Lucrece' by Villanis
Beautiful, affordable plaster bust signed by Villanis. She has a gilt patina and measures approx. 8 inches (20cm) tall. Condition is very good.

Beautiful Marble and Alabaster Bust
A wonderful, almost life size bust made of marble and alabaster signed on the back - V. Mariani. She is a very pretty lady in a floppy deco style hat with subtle colouration to lips and cheeks and is mounted on an ovular marble base. Her condition is excellent and she is very heavy. Measures 17 inches high, 16.5 inches wide and 9 inches deep.

Ref: F483 . . . £1,995

Bronze Diane The Huntress by Kolzoff
A wonderful art nouveau period bronze - a signed piece by Serge Kolzoff. See my Information on Artists page for more details about Kolzoff. This lovely figure measures 13 inches high and the quality is exceptional. She carries a bow and arrows in a sash attached to her belt around her hips, in very classical pose. Condition is excellent with only a few minor age related patina spots due to the fact that she's about 100 years old. Email me for more pics.

Ref: F2435 . . . £845

Nouveau Bronze Nude by Henri Huppe
Patinated bronze figure modelled as a woman walking on clouds holding a star in her hand, on marble plinth, signed in the bronze H.Huppe. She measures a total height of 22 inches (55.9cm). Condition is very good. Henri Huppe exhibited figures at the Salon Paris from 1874.

Ref: B157 . . . £1,895

Nouveau Bust 'Poesie'
This beautiful plaster bust is of excellent quality and measures approx. 24 inches (61cm) high and carries the 38 Depose stamp and is signed indistinctly G. Van Vacrenburgh. Condition is extremely good with just an old mark to the back of her hair bun, maybe there from new?

Ref: F1102 . . . £695

Huge (life size?) plaster Pieta (which I believe is the name given to the weeping women at the foot of the cross at the crucifixion of Christ).
Not deco! but when I saw the quality of this piece I thought it worth purchasing and she is still a lovely statue. Originally from a Belgian church, this lady has a wood frame and would look best viewed from below, but I am sure she would be pleased with any quiet corner. She is large - 43 inches (110cm) and has not back so needs to be placed in a corner or against a wall. Email me for more pics.

Ref: F1080 . . . £745

Art Nouveau Spelter Busts
A pair of genuine French art nouveau spelter busts, one is Salambo and the other Cleopatra. They are signed to the back but it is not very clear - may be Gibson? They each measure 11 inches (28cm) high. Condition is good with just the expected wear for 100 year old items. £395 each or £770 the pair.

Ref: F1847 and F1848 . . . £395 each
