2nd Pixie Lamp with Millefiori Glass - " DANSEUSE DES INDES " by Ignacio Gallo 1925

This one has the ivorine face and an electroplated copper finish to it.

This is the 2nd lamp like this I have. I also noticed a couple of things on these pixie lamps that I had not noticed before. The hands are all individually attached in the casting, which means there are a number of varieties the hands can be gesturing. Also I have seen one of these on line where the face paint is gone and the face is metal. So there must be 2 types of faces, an ivorine one, and a spelter one molded when the piece is first done.

One of the lamps now in my collection is this Pixie lamp whose creator is now shown, 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 actually by Ignacio Gallo.

The 4th picture is 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.

    Another amazing post Phil. These girls surely deserve a collector like you to preserve them for the future . I look at them and wonder how did sculptor come up with the idea of Pixies . They truly look like they stepped out of a fairy tale book in all their glory and splendor . Love love xoxo and Photography is incredible as usual :-)

    Very beautiful! I had never heard of Millefiori until a friend of mine told me about it a couple of months back. She & her sister have a space at a local antique store & sold a couple lamps, though none with pixies or that could match the beauty of any in your collection!

    P.S. if you ever decide to have an online photography class, I'll be the first to enroll!

    Thank you Marcello, saw the link and there sure are a lot of old items being reproduced for ebay. Don't know if that is a good thing.

    Thank you SpunkysMom for the kind words, I hope your friends showed you what the Millifiori looked like when turned on. I love it as night lights in my tv room. Would like to find some others but range high in price as these do, and yet to me they seem worth it.
  17. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 11 months ago
