'Tender Promises' after Chiparus
This is a spelter and ivorine version of Chiparus's Tender Promises art deco statue. It is signed Chiparus and has the bronze round Etling disc on the back. However this is not a genuine Chiparus, but it still makes a very big statement. It does however have very convincing faces and hands. An original would be in the high thousands and can be seen in the Chiparus book by Alberto Shayo, page 86. It measures 31 inches (79cm) long by 7.5 inches (19cm) deep and 15.5 inches high (40cm). Condition is good but there has been a repair at some stage to the onyx base but it is not very noticeable.

Art Nouveau Lady by Julien Causse
Bronze patinated spelter lady mandolin player by the French sculptor Julien Causse. She stands nearly 2 feet tall on a shaped base of verdigris marble which bears the plaque which reads 'La Musique - Par J. Causse (Beaux-Arts 1900)'. She is also signed in the metal and includes some musical notation inscribed in the stand on which she rests her foot. Please email me for close-ups. She is naked except for a cloth miraculously draped over her thigh and she is holding a mandolin which appears to have its original strings attached. She has a beautiful face (and body), and she is well built in the typical nouveau style, with a large bust, hips etc. and her hair is up in a bun with a delightful wreath in her hair, with some original highlighting to the patina in gold and silver still visible. This piece is stunning and in almost perfect condition with just a few very minor scuffs here and there. I have taken lots of close-up pics, and will be happy to send them on request. A picture of this same figure can be viewed in the Berman book of Bronzes, Vol 4 page 1078, item no 4301. Julien Causse - Born at Bourges, worked 1890 - 1914, studied in Paris under Falguiere and exhibited at The Salon des Artists Francais in the 1890s, obtaining honourable mentions in 1882 and 1900 and a third class medal in 1893. He also took part in the exposition Universelle of 1900 and specialised in small figures.

Avril par J. Causse
Another stunner from the prolific Julien Causse. She is titled Avril (April) and is a bronzed spelter lady sitting on a crescent moon admiring a rose. The base is a lovely stepped and shaped Sienna red marble socle and bears a plaque showing the title and sculptor. She is also signed in the metal. She still shows signs of the original highlighting in gold and silver in places and is in exceptional condition with no apparent damage or repairs etc, and with just a few minor nibbles to the underside corners of the base. She is 24 inches (61cm) tall, 9 inches (23cm) deep and 7 inches (18cm) wide. Many more pics available on request.
