RARE ART DECO HAGENAUER DANCER



My latest purchase, very rare and only the 3rd time i have ever seen one like this, purchased in November, but was sitting in Australian Customs for a full month, but really worth the wait. This large scaled dancer is classic streamlined form of the 1930's Deco period, made from Rosewood and Walnut . The artist captures the form and grace of the lithe female form like no others of the period, or following decades. It incorporates subtle carved lines to suggest hair, and tasteful bronze bracelets . She is quite large for Hagenauer's work, standing an impressive 56 cm. She is in excellent original condition, and is well marked with the Hagenauer marks on the underside.
