French Art Deco Period Figural Nude
Scarf Dancer Statue
Sculptor: Janle (Max Leverrier) for the Max LeVerrier foundry
Circa mid to late 1920's, Paris, France
Graceful nude dancer statue with a
flowing scarf encircling the dancer. Highly collectable.
The scarf has a stepped deco styling. Known as the "Bacchanale"
figure in the original catalog.
Janle was of the fortunate sculptors
whose work was produced by the Le Verrier foundry,
in Paris during the 1920's. It is suspected that Janele may have
actually been a pseudonym used by Max LeVerrier himself, as there is
no information on the artist name Janle and this was a common
practice at the LeVerrier foundry. The elegant and refined form are
an excellent representation of the Art Deco movement.
This figure and base are all original. Spelter cast metal statue,
with the original green paint intact.
Resting on the original porto black marble base, with beautiful gold
and white veining.
The base has a slotted insert for
the statue that fits snugly into the base. (see photo below)
This makes shipping and transport easy.
Easy to place, this is an ideal statue for a desk, vanity, side
table or console table.
Dimensions: 13 3/8" high, 7 7/8"
wide, 3 1/4" deep.
Condition: In excellent original
condition. Patina and age appropriate wear to paint.
