did Chiparus ever do sculpture in marble?

I know Chiparus did some work in porcelain for Etling. Did he ever do work in marble? I have come across a piece that the owner insists is Chiparus. Could it be? Is it as rare as he says?

i am no expert, and am looking for answers myself, but i have a chiparus and the base is marble and he also used ivory inlays in this statue. so, i know he worked with marble at least as a base for his bronze statues.

I have a marble sculpture that is signed DH Chiparus. It is "Cinderella" running home from the Ball and missing a shoe. She is 33" tall and 20" wide and over 100 pounds.

Hi, as far as I know did Demetre H. Chiparus use all kind off material for his Scultures. Recently on a visit to Cadaques (Spain) I went into a wellknown Anticstore there, full of sculptures from the 20th and I saw an original Figurine, made by Chiparus, made from terracotta. I was surprised and so I informed myself and found out, that he used Spelter, Chrysantelefantine, Brass, Terracotta and Marble.
