Statue by Carvin, 1927, Silvered Woman Walking Borzois Hounds Down a Marble Staircase.
The staircase on this statue is made of 2 kinds of marble along with onyx and chrome pieces.
I have only seen this statue twice in my life, there was one sold fairly recently in Germany,
but it was damaged. I bought mine in 1984 from a container of furniture and antiques brought
over from England. It was my first statue that I owned of any merit. One of the most beautiful
bases that I have seen on a statue from this period ! About a month later I found a wrought
iron console table also from about 1930, and from the same dealer to put it on.
