Vintage Art Nouveau Period Emmanuel Villains Porcelain Sculpture w/ Clock
This vintage Art Nouveau sculpture with clock is designed in a hard paste white porcelain. A sensuous young scantily dressed female figure is positioned upon the ledge of the town well. Her pensive facial expression sets a somber mood. A clock is found within the head of the tall fountain. Its white enamel face is decorated with floral garlands & Arabic numerals. The clock has a key wind movement & bell chime. A wonderful example of period Art Nouveau splendor by a prominent artist. I think, an asset to any Art Nouveau collector!
