Louis Chalon "Pirouetting Femme-Fleur" Gilt Bronze Tray
This French Art Nouveau gilt bronze tray features a sculpted "femme fleur" by Louis Chalon, aptly titled "Pirouetting Femme-Fleur." The female nude in the center of the tray stands joyously upon a rosebud, with arms raised high above her head in delight, as a supporting, stylized vine creeps up her leg and around her back. The tray is rendered so, that it appears as if she is emerging from a pool of rippling, liquid gold bordered by a shallow field of minutely detailed delicate blooms.
