Sweet buste of a sweet lady, cast marble dust, France, 1920-1930
She looks as if butter would not melt in her mouth. But I wonder if it is so. I think she is in for a joke. Just look at those twinkling blue eyes, I think she is full of mischief. Good mischief, funny mischief. Dancing on tables and midnight swims in the ocean. So yes, they marked her "Mignon"(which means sweet in French), but I doubt that.
Cast from marble dust, which is not actually dust from marble, but very fine grinded marble mixed with some stuff (do not ask me the name of the stuff, something glue like) after which it will be poured in a cast. A lot cheaper than carving a statue out of a piece of marble but a lot more fancy than plaster.
In the photo's you see her standing on a little plateau. That is not included in the price stated here, but you can find it some where else in the webshop. And if you buy them both at the same time, you get a little discount.
Dimensions: h 20 c, w 16 cm, d 8 cm.
