Not a curve, a glance, or a nuance is lost. It presents a marvelous opportunity for anyone who appreciates the ultimate in Art Deco to possess a classic work of art for a price that is affordable. Today, the originals of these rare sculptures sell for $500,000 to $1,000,000 if you could find them.
No two figures are quite the same. Ivory is exquisitely hand carved and frequently tinted producing a variety of different emotions and expressions. Bronze is colored through application of patina or cold painting. Effects achieved are often of classic proportions with richness, fleshiness and opulence that simply have no equal. Such talents as Chiparus, Colinet, Preiss and Poertzel worked their magic in the same way.

Additionally many varied techniques are employed to produce a variety of polychrome finishes each piece requires. Bases are made using marble and onyx from the design originally produced in Europe after the First World War.
