Description: Fabulous Art Deco sculpture "Archer" by Preiss. 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 have been lovingly and painstakingly recreated by expert craftsmen using the original molds by the artists of that time period.

Today in the world of rarities any one of these pieces would sell at a minimum of $50,000-$100,000 if you could find them.

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. Additionally many varied techniques are employed to produce a variety of polychrome finishes each piece requires. Bases are made using marble and onyx from the design originally produced in Europe after the First World War.
