I bought this lamp base at an estate sale this morning. It measures 13" tall and is very heavy. The marking on the bottom is DAV ART NY. It appears to be art deco. I would like to know how old it is.

    The JB Hirsch story begins in 1907 with the New York Art Bronze Works (D.A.V NY ART ) in Manhattan’s lower east side. The founder of the company, Romanian metalsmith, Joseph B. Hirsch, began importing pieces directly from French foundries. Around that period, foundries with close ties to the talented artists and sculptors of the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, began producing their now famous works in “French Bronze.” Some of the finest talent throughout Europe trained at the Ecole des Beaux Arts, exhibiting their works at the Salon de Artistes and other great Salons in Paris, the center of the art world. If your pixie has the D.A.V NY ART mark on it, it is from J B Hirsch's early period. It is NOT a reproduction or exemplar (re-cast from original molds) it is an original time piece.
