This link says it is from the 30's - 40's. https://www.rubylane.com/item/429-col-5284/Art-Deco-Bust-black-Fashion

It actually looks more Disco era (70's, 80's) to me. Maybe the base of yours has some clues?

Unfortunately nothing is marked on the base, mine is not the same mold as the one in the link, mine looks like an updated version, mid century perhaps. Thanks for the link, more to go on!

I found a site that has a black lacquered statue that looks fairly similar to yours.


California Modernist Sculpture by Ira Bates

Dimensions: 8.0ʺW × 4.0ʺD × 15.0ʺH
I don't know if this is the artist who created your piece or perhaps inspired someone else to copy it. They may have the real statue and create another layer/mold and then recreate replica copies. Looks like Ira has done a variety of sculpture pieces. I have not tracked down a page that talks about him/her though. My thought was if he/she had an email you could send him/her the picture to confirm. Maybe tomorrow. Need to get some sleep. I hope this helps.
