The artist Menneville was a prolific sculptor of Art Deco figurines. He also worked under the names of Ugo Cipriani and Uriano (1887 - 1960). Menneville initially studied in Florence at the Academy of Fine Arts before emigrating to Paris to escape fascism in 1935.

The oval-shaped base is of polished slate with an inset onyx centre and has a green baize to the base.
