Identification of Sculptor

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Art Deco Society of Washington : One Thread

I recently purchased a sculpture made by Louis Beataux. If this is original, how much would it be worth. It is a woman made of white marble who is holding a mirror. I beleive it is art deco.

I have one too - I would like to find out more about it. It has Louis Beataux on the back at the base. Note spelling Beataux. Is it marble or may be crushed re-constituted marble?

I also bought a Louis Beataux sculpture which, from your desciption, would appear to be the same as yours. I believe the statue is faux marble, (reconstituted marble)with a gilt base. It is in very good condition and paid 50 which seems to me to be a bit of a bargain.

I have not managed to trace Mr Beataux so far and wondered if you had made any further progress since you first posted your question.

Thank you in anticipation.
