Pixie Reader Lamp by Henri Fugere, mfg by The Hersch Foundry, c1925
Entitled "Contemplar" in the Berman Bronze Encyclopedia page 1174, Volume IV.

Usually attributed to Gerdago, who made bronzes and not spelter statues.
Fugere was born in 1872 and died in 1944. She studied with Barrius, Cavelier, etc and exhibited at The Salon, Paris.

The last photo shows the lamp in my home around November 30, 2013. I put on the largest glass ball I had. The smaller glass beside it with the controlled bubbles is probably the original. The original never fit that well and I have big bubble paperweights that fit much better !~

Dear God, I seem to have gone crazy, I just got this a few days ago, and by tonight I seem to have gone astray online and bought 3 more pixie lamps.
Yikes, there goes my credit !~

    what a collection...........just love it, nice find
  10. rocker-sd rocker-sd, 12 months ago
    Their like potato chips! You can't have just one. You always make them even greater with your photos. You just happen to have bigger balls, hanging around?
  11. Vintagefran Vintagefran, 12 months ago
    Lol.
    Love this & your credit remark...guilty here too, its easy to get carried away
  12. valentino97 valentino97, 12 months ago
    Very nice Phil and magical too. Are you sending this post from the future?
  13. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 12 months ago
    Yes Valentino you will read this in the past.

    rocker-sd - love, love the line 'like potato chips'. I have some of the glass ball paperweights that are about 4 X the size of the original.

    When I love something I always get carried away. I remember the simpler times when you went to the antique stores in your area, you would just buy there for all time, if you found another one time you became ecstatic - what were the odds ??!!. Now with the internet and online auctions happening on the minute it can become all too easy and of course addiction sets in ...

    Okay just checking I thought I lost a year somehow - I actually read all the post descriptions. Love it! Love your profile picture as always. I think you're under the magic of the pixie lamp still. Agree - easier when we could only buy in real time.

    Hi, Phil. Was the gold paste you mentioned to me appropriate for copper or brass type jewelry as well?
  19. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 12 months ago
    Yes SM, it is made in copper and silver also, not sure if they have developed any other colors since I used it. May have a brass. Otherwise also you might want to pick up a couple colors of Testers Enamels (very small glass bottles). They have a good Metallic Red, and Gold and nice Brass color. The Metallic colors might work the best, rather than normal red. The metallic red is beautiful. Michaels should have them !~
  20. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 12 months ago
    The Testors needs a thinner such as Recordsol paint thinner to clean the brushes. Get a fine brush also. The pastes can be washed off with soap and water or a bit of paint thinner if you don't like what you have done. Use a fine toothbrush or fine paintbrush also if you don't throw them away. The new toothbrushes are too hard.

    You can fix (finish) with a light spray, possibly gloss - Not too much.
