Many of these art deco bronzes are on display in our showroom. The 1920s is one of our favourite eras, particularly aesthetically in the shape of the art deco female figural form. All the masters from the 1920s – Chiparus, Preiss, Colinet, Descomps, Milo – are some of our favourite sculptors and we carry a range of their works. They look so good in contemporary settings and are also very collectible but of course always a good thing to check them out first in the Canonbury Antiques Hertfordshire showroom..

You are viewing a gorgeous  bronze casting of the famous Spirit of Ecstasy (on the hood / bonnet of every Rolls Royce motor car) on a marble base. Like every good work of art there is a great story behind its making (see below). The piece is offered in perfect condition and ready for home use right away and would make a great collectors piece for any home or collector. The finish is silvered bronze and is nearly three feet tall making this a wonderful statue for any collection.

This is certainly the most attractive and probably the best known motor car mascot in the world. Designed by Charles Robinson Sykes, she has adorned the radiators of Rolls-Royce motor cars since 1911 and concealed a hidden
passion. This marvellous mascot was modelled after a woman who had bewitching beauty, intellect and esprit – but not the social status which might have permitted her to marry the man with whom she had fallen in love.

This is the story of Eleanor Velasco Thornton, whose liaison with JohnWalter Edward-Scott-Montagu (after 1905 the second Lord Montagu of Beaulieu) was to remain a secret for a decade or more, principally because both partners acted
with the utmost discretion. John Scott, heir to his father’s title, was a pioneer of automobilism in England. From 1902 he was editor of the illustrated magazine The Car. Eleanor V Thornton was employed as his secretary. Friends of the pair knew of their close relationship but they were sufficiently understanding as to overlook it.

The bronze is offered in very good condition ready for home use right away and we will ship this to anywhere in the world. We bought this from a dealer in London’s Camden Passage.

It’s a delightful, charming piece depicting a young lady in an almost Arabesque pose but wearing typical clothes of the twenties. It would make for a great collectable decorative piece for your home. Demetre H. Chiparus was born in Romania in 1886 and then travelled to Paris before World War I to become more involved with his artwork. This is a later recasting from the original.

He attended school in Italy and at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, and he exhibited at the Salon in 1914. Chiparus was particularly adept in the technique of chryselephantine, the combination of bronze and ivory to produce dramatic, stylized sculpture. He produced most of his renowned works between 1914 and 1933. Paris was an exciting place in the years leading up to World War II, when Art Deco style and swinging good times were in vogue just as in the United States.

His later works in the 1920’s were influenced by his interest in Egypt, after the excavation of the Pharoah Tutankhmen’s tomb. Some of his most exciting works are dancers taken from the Russian Ballet, French theatre, and early motion pictures. Dancers were captured in movement, dressed in high art deco style and long and lean in appearance. Demetre Chiparus worked primarily with the Etling Foundry in Paris, and he died in Pairs in 1947.

Being bronze this will last forever without rusting and hence is a great investment as it will always appreciate in value. Aside from being aesthetically pleasing and nice to look at they can also become heirlooms.
