Biba bronze statuettes were made in or after the 1920s, with a distinct display of the Art Deco style that prevailed at that time. They were typically forms of a lady’s naked body, in perfect balance over a pedestal and holding an object(s) in the hands.
The bronzes were produced mostly using the lost wax method and acted as decorative items in the home. Today, you can find some of the items produced at that early time in antique shops all over the world. In this article, we shall describe some of the well-known Biba bronzes in the world.

This Art Deco bronze is one of the most famous items in this category. It depicts the body of a nude lady standing upright and holding a jardiniere in each hand. On the edge of the jardinieres, there stand three singing birds.
It’s a high-quality hot-cast solid bronze produced using the time-tested lost wax method or the cire perdue method. The beautiful lady can act as a great adornment and talking point in your home, no matter where you place it.
It measures 171 inches by 160 inches by 60 inches, which makes it large enough to hang on a shelf inside your home. Even though unclear when the Biba bronze was manufactured, it is clearly in perfect condition for those who wish to have it as part of their homes.
Even without reference to Art Deco, it’s clear that Biba bronzes were made using that style, which prevailed throughout the 1920s. It is an iconic piece of art featuring a naked lady balanced on her feet and holding a lamp in her arms.
Apart from being a decorative piece of art, the lamp can act as an addition to your home’s lighting system. It is a silver bronze statuette representing an original piece that was made in the 1920s.
Like other pieces of art from that period, this statuette is a sleek, minimalist representation of the 1920s female idea. Even though a replica of the original, it’s still as much a collector’s item as can be. It is almost 3 feet tall and the electric lamp is wired and ready for use.

This item was created in the iconic French Art Deco style and features a silver bronze cast of a figurine holding a ball in both hands. As is characteristic of the Art Deco movement, the statuette depicts perfect balance on a pedestal.
In it, we can see the 1920s, lithe, athletic woman with symmetrical limbs. Not only did the artist capture the energy of the scene but created perfect proportions of the limbs and torso. Like other figurines in this category, the Biba bronze stands on a marble pedestal.
It’s great for displaying in the home and creating a focal point for you, your family, and visitors. It measures 7 inches by 4 inches by 12 inches and is suitable for displaying anywhere in your home.
