Art Deco period decorative glass panel of a nude cowgirl. Used as a divider in The Bank Club in downtown Reno, which was once the largest casino in Nevada. Quality, heavy glass (7/8") etched from the reverse, with beveled edge, artist mark lower right, 39" x 12".
The photograph shows the casino floor of the Reno Bank Club in the 1930s. You can see the columns are fitted with panels of etched glass depicting regionally specific western scenes, and illuminated from within. This panel would have been similarly displayed.
