Pierre Laurel Art Deco Silvered Bronze Figure "Tambourine Dancer" c1925
This figure is in overall excellent condition commensurate with age. Some tarnishing to the silvered finish in places and very minor surface abrasions. Very minor "fleabites" to marble base - more felt than seen. Figure solidly mounted to base. Please images as these form an important part of the description.
