Alexander Ney Russian American contemporary sculptor" Animal Bead" this seems to be intended to be strung since the hole in the mouth goes all the way through, with the others in the collection in silver this seems like it was a attempt to make jewelry art. The artist initialed this piece "N 1" in his usual incised way. Size l nearly 2.75"" by 1.25" high. This is from a very rare group of early miniature pieces most all were initialed in this way. Developing several individualistic styles in modern art, he is most famous for his unique work in terra cotta sculpture, involving heavily perforated surfaces and intriguing forms.
