Her skirt is cased glass with applied threading.The base has gold flecking as does her hair and sleeve ends.She is in fine condition with no damage.

This is a nice example of a Venetian glass figure of a male dancer.I believe him to be from the 1950's from the quality and the use of cased glass.He stands 12 inches tall and is in perfect condition. A nice heavy amount of gold in the clear glass.I do not see to many of these at shows or shops anymore.

The carved wood 60's frame has a few chips in the thin gesso top coat.Flegel was known for his style of painting on the open canvas with a palette knife which is quite evident in this picture.From the few pictures of his we could find on line this seems to be a much better than normal example of his work...
