Spanish dancer by Lenci
This figure of a Spanish dancer was bought from a charity shop for £29.95 by a gentleman who recognised that it was by Lenci, having seen similar figures on Antiques Roadshow.
The dancer was designed by Helen Konig Scavini for Lenci in the 1930s and is a fantastic example of her highly sought-after work. This was a fantastic purchase as it's worth between £2,500 and £3,000.
Did you know? The term 'Art Deco' is derived from the 'Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes', an exhibition held in Paris in 1925.
