Early 20th Century French Painted Paper Mâché Restaurant Chef Sculpture



Decorate a kitchen counter with this colorful antique restaurant sign figure. Crafted in France, circa 1920, the piece made of "papier mâché" stands on a round base and depicts a happy cook thumbed up, presenting today's "menu du jour" on the small black chalk board. The tall figurative sculpture has the original paint finish in the beige, black and red palette; it is in excellent condition commensurate with age and use. Measures: 12.5" W x 8" D x 18.5" H.
