Rare Austrian Art Deco Spelter 'flapper Girl' Striker By Josef Lorenzl C.1925

A Rare Austrian, Cold-Painted Spelter 'Flapper Girl' Table Striker or Lighter, designed by Josef Lorenzl, around 1925.

Josef Lorenzlwas one of the most famous & prolificsculptors of the Art deco period.He produced figurative pieces in both bronze, spelter and porcelain, where he worked along side Stefan Dakonat 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 style & glamour, reflected the revolution in society of the roaring nineteen-twenties and thirties!

This paticular piece is cast in cold-painted spelter, as a gentleman's table lighter or striker, with varieing huesof coppers, golds & silvers to thegirls attire. It depicts arisque 1920's dancing flapper girl, standing on tip-toe, raising her skirt up to create the dramatic pose, pure Art Deco in herpoise and serene glamour!She stands atop a geometricArt Deco 'Odeon-style' pedestal base. It is this base that holds the wand for the striker, and the plynth would of contained the lighter fuel.The striking plate is situated on the base,with surrounding strike-marks showing original signs of use. All is inamazing condition, with just these strike marks and rubbings to theoctagonal base,the figure is free from any repairs or damage. This paticularfemale model seems to of been a favourite of Lorenzl's, as she was produced in several of his figures and strikers, either posed at a bar drinking or seated on travelling luggage waiting for a train, always dressed in the height of 1920's fashion with elegantlycoiffeured hair.

She stands animpressive 250mm's tall by 100mm's deep and 110mm's wide, and is quite weighty forthe size!
