Iris Cooke only worked for a very short period of time - and works by her are very rare.
This is a little rare Art Deco Bronze desktop sculpture or metal paperweight - which takes the form of a reclining deer.
It was made around 1929.
It is signed on the base: Iris Cooke
The artist was best known for these little bronze sculptures or paperweights, which she specialised in.
Cooke only worked for a few years at the end of the 1920s and exhibited at the Swansea Art Society Thirty-Fourth Exhibition, 1929. She gave her address as being at Carbis Bay in Cornwall.
She was a member of the Swansea Art Society from 1929 - 1930.
Very sweet little model - and a very rare item.
It is in excellent condition and is not 90 years old.
