Splendid marble ashtray with a bronze sculpture of a nude woman, signed by Joe Descomps (1869-1950). It measures 18cm in length and 12cm in width.The signature is engraved in the marble. One might think that there is a flaw in the marble, but it appears to be the marble's natural vein. When running a finger over it, there are no rough edges on top of the ashtray, indicating that it has not been broken and glued back together.
I am unsure if it was originally made this way or if the vein has become more pronounced over time. Careful packaging for shipping or possibility of hand delivery in Paris.
