Rare Austrian Art Deco 'reclining Flapper Girl' Striker Signed Lorenzl C.1939 For Sale

A Cold-Painted Solid-Cast Spelter 'Reclining Flapper Girl' Table Match-Striker,signed by Josef Lorenzl, castaround 1939.

Josef Lorenzl was one of the most famous and prolific sculptors of the Art deco period.He produced figurative pieces in both bronze, spelter and porcelain, where he worked along side Stephan Dakon in the famous Austrian Goldscheider factory. His pieces depicted the style and elegance of the period, where his ladies with their slim elongated, almost boy-like features found fame throughout Europe and the world. His sense of oppulence and sexual liberation, reflected the revolution in society of the roaring nineteen-twenties and thirties!

This paticular piece is cast in cold-painted solid-spelter, that almost gives it the weight of bronze, as a gentleman's table match-striker, with varieing hues of golds, greens& coppery browns to the original cold-painted finish. It depicts aflapper girl, wearing a very short ruffled dress with plunging neck-linereclining against a shelf, quite moderne and risque dress for the period.The shelf/plynthagainst which sherestshas a recess to the rear, which would hold and hide a box of matches.That could be then struck and lit on the the metal base. All is in lovely original condition,with both the figure and stand free from any breaks or repairs. It is signed 'Lorenzl' in raised under-scored capitals to one side of the shelf on the rear of the base, see picture 5.
