Today three quarters of a century later the finest pieces in the Art Deco style have been brought back to life. A select grouping of masterpiece chryselephantine sculptures has been lovingly and painstakingly recreated by expert craftsmen using the original molds by the artists of that time period.

It presents a marvelous opportunity for anyone who appreciates the ultimate in Art Deco to possess a classic work of art for a price that is affordable. Today, the originals of these rare sculptures sell for $500,000 to $1.1 million.

No two figures are quite the same. Ivory is exquisitely hand carved and frequently tinted producing a variety of different emotions and expressions. Bronze is colored through application of patina or cold painting. Effects achieved are often of classic proportions with richness a fleshiness and opulence that simply have no equal. Such talents as Chiparus Colinet Preiss and Poertzel worked their magic in the same way.

These castings are of singular quality lost wax bronze and hand carved ivory from a small remaining stock of ancient mammoth tusks. All ivory used in the production of bronze and ivory sculptures is under lawful government permit. Every care is taken to replicate the processes and finish chase work of the original craftsmen.
