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.
