Pixie Lamp with Bubble Glass - DANSEUSE DES INDES by I. Gallo circa 1925

This lamp was made by the Hirsch Foundry and I bought this at an auction in Detroit, Michigan. I have included a photo of the back of the statue for detail and for provenance I put in page 1175 of the Dictionary of Bronzes for extra provenance to show who made this piece, which is always sold wrongly attributed. No Gerdago here, Gerdago never worked in spelter. The marble base was made in Italy.

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.

The first photo I took last night, Dec. 11, 2013, to show detail on the back. I have added a larger ball which fits better than the original.

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. All the ones you see have electrical plugs mostly circa 1970's to 80's I think.
