'Girl Violinist' - A Fine Art Deco Chryselephantine Figure Carved from a Model By Paul Philippe, Cast By Preiss Kassler.

This fine ivory and cold-painted Bronze figural study depicts a young girl seated playing the violin and is raised on an onyx base. A photograph of an invitation card to the Preiss & Kassler stand at the 1930 Leipzig fair, shows the violin player by Philippe prominently displayed as one of the central exhibits on their stand, (illustrated in Alberto Shayo, Ferdinand Preiss: Art Deco Sculptor, 2005, p.49).

** Adrian Alan Ltd is committed to the protection of elephants and preventing the illegal trade in ivory. All of the items that we offer for sale are antiques over 100 years old and of genuine artistic, cultural or historical value. The inclusion of ivory, de minimis in this Chryselephantine figure, is as an original constituent part of an antique over 100 years old and created pre-CITES convention (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora - 3 March 1947). We do not support the trade in modern ivory in any way.
