Miniature Anvil with Nude

Talleres Metalurgicos "Alcaide"

During the first half of the twentieth century "Naughty" art deco curios were a staple of working class male bastions including engineering offices, machine shops, barber shops and other such places. The art of the time was much more innocent than that of today. Features were stylized and blurred on purpose. This is a piece of historical art that could not exist in our ever increasing politically correct world.

One collector has reported having the exact same marked anvil but without the nude.

Dimensions:
4" x 2-5/8" to top of knee.
From Argentina.
