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

This is a second lamp I have like this in a yellow color, though one has a more greenish tint to it.

This lamp was made by the Hirsch Foundry and I bought this at an auction through ebay. 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, (included in last post) 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.

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.

    I can never get enough of these. I once had a friend who performed in a production called the Nouvelle Experience, another chapter of Cirque Du Soliel. These remind me of it. Great piece! =)

    Thanks David, Mani was instrumental in helping me just get a new one tonight. I could not see or find it on ebay as it was only for US residents. Just have to arrange payment to her now.
  8. Aimathena, 8 months ago
    They're very hard to find. I was trying to find one just to see what price range they go for on ebay. I've only found one once. Mani is a sweety, I'm glad she helped you. it's a real beauty. Funny... during my search I found a pretty strained glass flutterby fairy lamp, and young of Mani.
