This antique has been viewed 26 times in the past month with the most views from Finland.


Rarely seen Art Nouveau polychromed terracotta figure of a young semi-nude maiden standing on an ornate plinth, leaning forwards and holding in front of her a large shell.
With just a small amount of drapery curled around her back and falling to the floor at her feet, and with her hair styled into a chignon, she's the epitome of Art Nouveau.
The almost circular, very slightly dished shell is offered forward as a visiting card or letter tray and this sculpture would most probably have been placed in the entrance hall of a home in those times.
Designed for Goldscheider by the in house artist E. Tell circa 1900 and showing his signature together with the Goldscheider plaque and the numbers 2046/98/22.
The condition is good, commensurate with age , with just a little wear here and thereto the green, beige and brown finish.
Approximately 60 cms. high by 41 cms. wide and 50 deep.
Internal Ref: 12206
