Just aquired this beatutiful lamp and I can't find any info on it except that it is a Gerdago Pixie Lamp. The lamp resembles a mushroom with the pixie dancing underneath. It produces a soft night light glow when lit.

    I found lots. They were circa 1920-1930. They were made by the JB Hirsch company. Some of these can go pretty high

    Thanks for the info. Maybe I should get it appraised and insured.

    The true value of something is what somebody is willing to pay for it.I use Ebay auctions(Not Buy It Now)to get a good idea of what something is worth in todays market.

    I have the clock that goes with this lamp, and I know there are also bookends or garnitures for it. The bookends show the lady seated as does my clock, they are from 1925 and are rare, they were made by the J B Hirsch foundry.

    I also have a pirate set by J B Hirsch also consisting of a lamp, clock, and one book end, these are from 1931.

    Does she have an ivory face?

    My mother sold a dish that looked like the same thing, it was broken and she still got a ton of money for it
  8. rlwindle rlwindle, 2 years ago
    The face and hands are what is called ivorine and not ivory. It's an artificial Ivory.
  9. Stillwater Stillwater, 2 years ago
    Yes I know what Ivorine is. The one my mother sold was real ivory, so it must have been different, but she was wearing the same red outfit.
  10. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 1 year ago
    The figures can have a metal face mostly and are just painted ivory. The bookends for instance all look like this and have painted metal faces.
  11. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 10 months ago
    Appears from new info in book this is by Ignacio Gallo, and I have posted some info in my page. The faces are generally made of Ivorine which is a plastic made to look like ivory. The alabaster lamp is of a nice age, possibly from the 20's-30's. They were made all the way probably into the 1970's, as all the ones you ususally see now have new cords and switches to them !~
