P. Sega Art Deco Metal Figurine Girl and Goat

Authentic P. SEGA (French 20th century) figurine, circa 1920-25. Cast metal with marble stand and figurine inscribed “P. Sega France”.

col-13487a.JPG

This is a distinctly marked “France” and “P.Sega” on each of the girl pictured.
The unique shaped base is beautiful multi colored marble and is in great shape with nothing more than minimal nicks.

Size: c. 34 x 13 x 22,5 cm (c. 13,5 x 5 ¼ x 8 ¾ inches)

There a holes at the bottom side where the figurine is fixed to the base plate.

One of the bolts is a little loose and should be replaced to make it stable again. As it are screws with US winding (inches) I cannot get one here to replace it. If not replaced it is stable too, just not as stable as before.

The figurine has not been cleaned and there is only moderate patina.

It looks great and stands out.
