An unusual gilt patented art metal figure of a female book reader mounted on a portorro marble base. This one very unusual as she has a cushion to the back and also bearing a foundry medallion stamp from the Le Verrier foundry neither which I have seen before.
She measures 8.5 inches (22cm) high, 5 inches wide (12.5cm) and 3 inches (7.5cm) deep.
Condition is good with some minor wear to the patina due to age.
Possibly a very early example circa 1920s.
