Leonardi Gold Rhapsody Figure
Stunning original art deco plaster figure of a semi nude dancing lady. Designed by Giuseppe Leonardi for the Leonardene Co in London in the 1920s and 30s. This beautiful figure is very well modelled with a very pretty face. These figures were mass produced at the time and made from plaster to be affordable for the general public to have art deco pieces. This model is called Rhapsody and is in a beautiful light gold colour. She is in very good condition but there are a couple of areas of flaking to the front bottom edge of her skirt and base and also to the back of one of the hands. The figure has the impressed GL marks on the base of RD 817181.244. I have another available in green-gold. A fabulous vintage art deco figure. Height - 38 cms.
