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.
Ref: Can be seen in the Chiparus book by Alberto Shayo, page 86.
Good condition with a repair at some stage to the onyx base.
31 inches (79cm) wide, 7.5 inches (19cm) deep, 15.5 inches (40cm) high.
