"Stunning Art Deco bronze - Oriental Waiter - signed F. Preiss"
This stunning Art Deco bronze figure is showing a little black waiter serving a tray with dishes. He was created by the famous German sculptor Ferdinand Preiss, who named this figure "Oriental waiter". The young boy is dressed in an oriental way, as he wears big ruffled up trousers and a small jacket with very long sleeves and a turned up collar. The oriental waiter also wears a big turban on his head and small shoes with a lifted up pointed toe. The lovely sculpture is set on a high polished marble plinth and is worked very filigree and in detail. So the folds of the servant’s trousers and the turban seem very realistically and naturally. The amazing Art Deco figurine will be a gain for each collection of bronze sculptures and enchants by its lovely depiction. The sculpture itself is made of 100% bronze and contains the signature of its creator Ferdinand Preiss at the small bronze base.

Johann Philipp Ferdinand Preiss, who was born on February 13, 1882 in Erbach, mostly worked with ivory and thus created unique and special woman and children figures. The artist, whose naturalistic and realistic works belong to the epoch of Art Deco, was mainly inspired by his teacher Philipp Willmann and a trip to Italy around 1901. Most of Ferdinand Preiss' works were cast in Hermann Gladenbeck's foundry in Berlin. Preiss also founded his own business, when he, together with his friend Arthur Kassler, established "Preiss & Kassler" in 1910. Sculptures and figures of Preiss became very popular and well-known Art Deco items. They are even today a much sought-after collector's subject and still have a great reputation. Ferdinand Preiss died in 1943 because of a brain tumour.
