art nouvo or deco?.
by peter paul coyle esq.
dear peter' i have another stump for you. i purchesed a rather loveley lady the other day ,i hasen to say she was an ornament.but my stump is ,that i dont know wether she is art-deco or nouvo. she is 2ft/2inch's high ,she stand's very elegantley with a rather large dog at her side but is painted quite crudely,she is dressed in a black flowing gown wich is strapless, and has a green type of ribbon round her hair,wich goes down her back and dress. 'looking at her' i cant make up my mind wether she is deco or nouvo. ther are no mark's on the peice, but i do know she came from the plaza cinema in wishaw, and she is made of plaster. can you tell me if there is any kind of value in these cinema relic's.

Sounds like quite a find. I would suggest definitely Art Deco - (this being the right era).
Go to http://www.deco-world.com to see the value of this type of wares. I would say it was valuable to a collector. You can phone them too.
On my China Replacement
page, I show you how to search the internet properly.
I couldn't find much on cinema figures.
p.s. The following page is a 'must see' if you are researching fine china - for value and identification:-Researching the identity and value of antique and vintage fine china
