Chryselephantine is the process where an amalgam of bronze and ivory is carved and gilded into a sculpture. This technique was popular with many Art Deco sculptors working out of Paris and Berlin in the 1920s making studies of stylish young women with elongated limbs .

Artists such as Chiparus, Ferdinand Preiss, Paul Philippe, Descomps and Lorenzl frequently used this technique in their works.
