The enchanting water nymph in this exquisite Art Nouveau-era statuette is carved of solid amber. Art Nouveau, an avant-garde style that emerged in the early 1890s, received widespread popularity almost simultaneously throughout Europe and the United States. The movement celebrated natural beauty with fluid lines, asymmetrical decorations and exotic subject matter. This outstanding figure, set upon its ebonized wood base, combines all of these hallmarks to form a work that is at once vibrant and elegant.
