Lady at her Toilette

French voyeuristic figurine presented in its original pine and brushed cotton carry-case with lock. A decorative scale at 35cm high, dating from around 1850. The depiction of Satan and phalluses on her bidet, the legs of which are modelled with hooves, suggest this is possibly a depiction of a prostitute at her toilette. Delicately moulded from plaster of paris with classical features and raised on a plinth, this is a highly detailed, risqué object of desire.
