This is an absolutely charming large antique Art Deco bronzed spelter figure  by the renowned French sculptor Jean De Roncourt, titled "Le Guetteur"  ("The Lookout") and bearing his signature,  Circa 1920 in date.

The attention to detail is fantastic and the sculpture has a lovely green verdigris patination and is m
odelled and cast as an athletic semi naked young man with his left hand cupped to his ear.

The sculpture is raised on a jet black Belgian marble base, and it is inscribed
J de Roncourt on the front of the top surface of the right hand side of the black marble plinth.

A must have for any serious collector of Deco  sculptures.

Art Deco or Deco,
is an influential visual arts design style which first appeared in France during the 1920s, flourished internationally during the 30s and 40s.

It is an eclectic style that combines traditional craft motifs with Machine Ageimagery and materials. The style is often characterized by rich colours, bold geometric shapes, and lavish ornamentation.

Deco emerged from the Interwar period when rapid industrialization was transforming culture. One of its major attributes is an embrace of technology. This distinguishes Deco from the organic motifs favored by its predecessor Art Nouveau.

Historian Bevis Hillier defined Art Deco as "an assertively modern style...[that] ran to symmetry rather than asymmetry, and to the rectilinear rather than the curvilinear; it responded to the demands of the machine and of new material...[and] the requirements of mass production".

During its heyday Art Deco represented luxury, glamour, exuberance, and faith in social and technological progress.
