    You can see my posts of all the different "Gerdago" girls which I have on my page. Originally they were made in Paris by Fayral which is a pseudomym of Pierre La Faguays. Along the way they were reproduced by JBHirsh who got hold of the original molds. Gerdago is a mistaken attribution to a Gerdago who was famous for his or her girls who wore large art deco hats. There was a large site that showed a lot of incorrect info who took it off since they have found out the correct attribution since letting them know.

    There is a more valuable one which I have several examples of on my pages. It is much better modelled and commands higher prices. I will be posting some pixie lamps in early December which have the beautiful other version. Hopefully soon I will post the pages in the book Encyclopedia of Bronzes. In my last post I posted a lamp of Ignacio Gallo who produced another pixie girl wrongly attributed to Gerdago who only made pieces of Bronze, and not spelter which is what these are made of.
