I don't know that it has a name....that tidbit escapes me. It is an art deco style. I believe it is bronze, but I could be wrong and it could just be a mixed metal cast.

Last time I researched them (I have a friend who is super into deco) they had not held their value (which is great for buyers but bad for sellers).

If this is yours, the one on the left, then it went unsold with a second figure in the high $30s. Only a sold price would give you the exact value in today's market.

I don't see it relisted at the moment, but I a sure if you keep checking back to eBay you will find one that has sold and that will give you today's current market value.

Neat piece!! Thanks for sharing!

I would upload the picture to Lesser and Pavey. They sell a lot of figurines. www.leonardo.co.uk/.../

Leonardo put themselves out of the general collectible market when they went to almost mass producing their merchandise. This happened several years ago and now there are many who paid top dollar for their pieces and their value has dropped to very low figures.

  • I can remember even in 2000 when these beautiful pieces were sold in only high end stores - mainly high end jewelry stores. The prices matched their overall decor and it was assumed they would be worth keeping for investment.
  • Now it is even difficult to sell these for $50 much less the anticipated "thousands" from years ago.
  • I do not remember any particular names given except something like "Charleston" or nude lady but I could be wrong about that. I do not remember seeing any with name tags.
  • Some people like the "bronze" color and there does not seem to be as many of these around as there are of the colorful ladies of the 20's.
  • When you speak of value, it is difficult when none (even similar) have been sold (maybe none even listed on eBay in the US) in the past 6 months or so but to me, that is an indication that you might be able to sell yours for a higher price.

  • If you wish to sell her, I would suggest listing her on sites other than eBay as eBay has many pitfalls for inexperienced sellers.
  • Craigslist, LetGo, OfferUp and similar sites are easy to use and many times there will be no shipping involved.
  • I would start her at $75-$125 or (?) (especially right now) and lower the price if no one shows an interest.
  • My oldest son has purchased about 20 of Leonardo's ladies (usually paying less than $30 total) and has them displayed on a prominent shelf/wall in his house and they usually always receive more compliments than anything else in his house. Too feminine? To me. they are some of the most beautiful ladies ever produced but still not very valuable.
  • Good luck.
  • I like your figurine and hope you can realize (money) what she is really worth and not what the market dictates.
