Pixie Lamp with Millefiori Glass - " DANSEUSE DES INDES " by Ignacio Gallo

One of the lamps now in my collection is this Pixie lamp whose creator is now shown for the first time I might add, although as most pixie lamps they are sometimes credited as Gerdago, although there is info in the Encyclopedia of Bronzes that refutes this idea. This dancer is by Ignacio Gallo.

The 3rd and 4th pictures are recreated from page 1173 of the Encyclopedia of Bronzes the brilliant work of Harold Berman. 4 Volumes completes the authors 12 year search for and visual recording of the vast number of bronze sculptures known to have been produced in the period 1800-1930. To illustrate how complete, most all the photos were by Mr. Berman.

Millefiori means "a thousand flowers" in Italian and is the name given to the type of Murano glass filled with floral designs. I recently saw a new sculpture with a Millefiori shade but the shade was new. It was quite horrible with mostly white and very little color, and also seemed lopsided !

Ignacio Gallo was born in Valladolid, Spain in the late 19th Century. He worked in Madrid and Paris in the inter-war years and specialized in statuettes of bathers, dancers, nudes and goddesses.

These items were produced by the Hirsch foundry and not after the first World war as is reported by the people who sell these all the time and promote only the most positive of things. Actually I would imagine they were especially cast after the second world war. However they are definitely NOT cheap.

    Thanks Mani for the comment and the love. If you remember the ebay pics I showed you when I bought this about a week ago -- this is from the first pic that I cropped and darkened the background.

    Just a lovely lamp...:-)
  11. mikelv85 mikelv85, 11 months ago
    Wow, Phil you are so lucky ! I wish I had found this instead of the Elephant one. It's much more elegant. Mine has the same base and shade too. It's not marked either but I'm pretty sure the shades are Murano, but I have no clue where the figure was made.
  12. Aimathena, 11 months ago
    Wow, is that awesome Phil. Enjoy it in good health.

  14. valentino97 valentino97, 11 months ago
    This is so gorgeous Phil and thank you for posting the catalog pages too. I enjoy seeing the research. What a wonderful lamp.
  15. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 11 months ago
    Thank you valentino, the pages are page 1173 of Mr. Berman's books and he photographed most of the statuary himself as part of his research !~
  16. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 11 months ago
    Mike yours probably came out of the J.B. Hirsch Co. also, I have seen the elephant modelled as bookends also.
  17. mikelv85 mikelv85, 11 months ago
    Thanks Phil :) I meant to ask you if you had seen mine in your book. I still like your's better. Nothing against elephants though....lol
  18. Aimathena, 11 months ago
    Mike, I imagine your elephant lamp would be very much loved by anyone from India :^) You and Phil both have very nice lamps.
  19. mikelv85 mikelv85, 11 months ago
    Thanks Aimathena, It was an incredible find as Phil said. I do love it given the shear luck in finding it.
  20. Aimathena, 11 months ago
    You are most welcome Mike. I think the elephant will eventually grow on you, and you'll learn to love it more. I think its beautiful, you did great. If I had a few hundred to spare I would try to buy the one in the link that you posted. Its gorgeous.

    Thank you charcoal & SEAN68 for the loves, appreciated.
  22. cogito cogito, 11 months ago
    Rock solid provenance/sale history. Golden evidence beyond the inherent beauty of the piece. This is the kind of stuff that I dream about!
