This is a splendid antique French Art Nouveau snow-white and red alabaster sculpture of a graceful dancing lady in classical dress on a striking Verde Antico marble pedestal, circa 1890 in date.
She is candidly smiling and looking downward while making gentle movements with her hair carefully tied up. Like a living being she seems almost to dance in front of us and the sculptor has clearly attempted to make the alabaster come to life.
The lovely antique French Verde Antico green marble pedestal dates from the late 19th Century in date.
The pedestal is assembled in three interlocking sections and has a shaped rectangular moulded platform top which is raised on a turned and fluted column support with circular socle and octagonal shaped base. The top part of the column rotates so that you can easily change the position of the sculpture.
All in really excellent condition, with no chips, marks, or signs of repair please see photos for confirmation.
