    I bid on this statue in my city antique auction, sometime in the very early 90's and obtained this sand cast bronze which is different in the more known hot wax process. The wax process produces a hollow cast bronze and over 95% of old bronzes are the wax process.

    The statue has it's original patina and the deco base is original to the statue. The sand cast bronzes are solid bronze and are not hollow. She is 17 inches high and very heavy.

      A swimmer? She's so effortlessly elegant, Phil, what a catch. I love the two tones of the metal and the division created by the swim(or other?)wear.

      Thank you Caperkid for the comment, the room has changed location, but you can see the deco style coffee table in my flamingo ornament photo.
