Greetings fellow collectors,
I just wanted to share some pics of this rare & beautiful Art Deco bronze candle-holder that I recently bought my wife for our anniversary.
Here's (part of) the original seller's description:
"In excellent, original condition with a beautiful patina and multiple signatures. Stamped “Seidel” twice on the bottom of the base, and also with the signature “E. P. Seidel” on the bottom of the figure. Emory P. Seidel was born in 1881 and died in 1954, and is a noted Chicago sculptor listed in all major art indexes. The total height is 6 ½” to the top of the candle socket, 9” maximum length, 2 5/8” maximum depth at the base.
A classic Art Deco era nude figure that is beautifully rendered."
