Information on an Art Deco Piece

posted by Michael Zoldessy on February 12, 2007 at 7:00 am

I am trying to find out how to identify a piece my wife was given about ten years ago. It is a large round metal sign of some kind. It is three pieces but it bolts together. Assembled it is approx. seven and a half foot in diameter and around three inches deep. It is painted with an art deco style woman sitting with a knee up and a ball or sphere in her up-stretched hand. It looks like it is baked on enamel similar to an automobile paint job and has four colors.

I suspect it is from the 30’s judging from the other pieces of furniture she was given at that time. The furniture pieces I am having better luck identifying. As you can see, it has a commercial art appearance. I have had several opinions that it could have been installed in a theater of the era.

I was wondering if you have seen anything like it before?

Thank you for any help you could give me.
All the best,
Sean Howard
