Erte (Romain de Tirtoff) (French, 1892-1990). Art Deco bronze sculpture titled "La Mysterieuse," depicting an elegantly dressed woman, 1980. Etched with Erte's signature along the base. Stamped R.K.P. Int. Corp, dated 1980, and numbered 78/250 along the base.
Height: 15 1/2 in x width: 9 3/4 in x depth: 14 3/4 in. The item is in good vintage condition. Dust collected to the surface, as expected. Wear throughout; throughout the item there are paint losses. There is a mark along the base by the back of the dress; it does not appear to be a restoration attempt. When inspected under UV light, there are three areas that appear to be a possible restoration attempt to the front of the dress. Below the left hand, there is an area with green accretion. Wear to the underside, consistent with age and use. Please contact us for a detailed condition report. Please note that the lack of a condition statement does not imply perfect condition. Email with any condition questions.
