A FRENCH art deco figurine owned by South Australia’s Angas family for more than 90 years, depicting a Spanish flamenco dancer who famously married an Indian Maharajah, will be auctioned next month.
Dancer of Kapurthala, by renowned Paris-based, Romanian-born sculptor Demetre Chiparus, was purchased new by Ronald Fife Angas in the 1920s and has been in the family collection ever since.
