Not sure what to make of this lady. Was told she came from a Deco era Belgium movie theater. She's green fiberglass and there is wiring in her hands where she appears to have held a globe or something. The feet have been broken off above the toes so she needs to be reattached to the base.

    This is a real find. I am so surprised that this didn't end up in a city dump like so many historical pieces that fell out of vogue. This was made before fiberglass could be cast as it is today. Each piece of fiberglass had to be laid individually and sculpted. To get such detail would have taken a good amount of skill. I could really see it on the exterior, holding a large lit globe. I know it would take some time and money to restore and rewire, but the end product would be priceless.
