Bookend Lamp, "Contemplar" By Henri Fugere, C. 1927, Hersch Foundry

I have always loved the art deco pixie bookends since I first found a single one with the arm cut off. It was not for sale, but a year later I did buy it as the store was closing. To this day, I cannot but try to bid on these bookends, as I love them so much !!

They have always been incorrectly called Gerdago girls, but she did not sculpt ones identical to these, nor did she ever work in spelter. Designed first in 1927 by Henri Fugere. Fugere was born in 1872 and died in 1944. He studied with Barrias, Cavelier, Peusch, etc and exhibited at The Salon, Paris.
He was predominantly an Art Deco sculptor.

Thanks to Manikin for finding this for me on Ruby Lane, and alerting me of it, I bought it right away. Think there was a similar one with problems to it on etsy so I did not bid on that one.

The patina on this one is one of the nicest I have ever seen, which it does not show too well in the pictures, but showing better in the pictures that I have added !~

  7. Jono Jono, 7 months ago
    Very nice Phil.
    Can you describe the glass ball? How far in are the holes (dimples) in the glass?
  8. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 7 months ago
    Thank you geo26e and LeahGoodwin for the loves, appreciated.
  9. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 7 months ago
    Jono the glass ball is smooth on the outside those are merely bubbles inside the glass.
  10. Jono Jono, 7 months ago
    Oh okay. I was trying to visualize how one could redirect prisms of light to shine small beams down onto the pixie.
    Thanks Phil

    Radegunder, I am rather fascinated by this one, the colors are perfection, greenish yellow with golden relief. Would love to have several more.

    What a nice collection. I love how the reading pixie seems to be covering her face from the light emmited by the lamp. It works better than the ones that don't have a lamp attached.
  43. antiquerose antiquerose, 3 months ago
    Yes, Everything in his home is BEAUTIFUL. As I had seen it once in person. It is a Masterpiece --- his home!!!

    It HAS the WOW FACTOR!!!!
  44. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 3 months ago

  45. smiata smiata, 3 months ago
    Oh my! The gold colouring is gorgeous on these beauties! You have the most amazing collections. I would love to see an full collection picture. (Just for perspective).
  46. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 3 months ago
    Thanks smiata, I have put several away lately, I seem to have too many for my tables and smaller bookcases already ! I attempted in some of these pictures to get the feel, but it becomes too jumbled to see a picture of more than 3 or 4 at a time.
  47. ZZeppelin, 2 months ago
    What more can I say. Wow!
  48. antiquerose antiquerose, 2 months ago
