An extraordinary grandiose presence: admire whole-souled this scene with fascinating beauty - look at this beautiful young woman in a very elegant toilet, half lying nonchalantly, in a very choreographic pose revealing splendid legs, playing with a young panther, letting him nibble the tip of his scarf.
Excellent quality chiselling for a warm and luminous patina. You too will be seduced by this incredible spectacular creation, of a majestic sumptuousness. Do not let it go: not easy to find, very rare.
