Here's some of our Art Deco Ladies. Includes lamps, nite lites, clocks, candle sticks and bronze statues. Maxfield Parrish prints above our circa 1939 petrified wood art deco fireplace.

    Great art deco collection. I love the figures and the Maxfield Parrish prints, is your house a Craftsman the fireplace is spectacular. What are the inserts in the fireplace?

    Thank you rlwindle, no, the house is a colonial ranch. It ws built in 1939. We bought it from the family that built it. The interior has all original woodwork that was never painted and there are hints of Deco thru out the house. Like the grates you see on the fireplace. All the molding is a three step deco design. It is a perfect showcase for our collections.

    Sweet! I love the parrish, as well as the deco!

    Rocker, what is that middle print? Is that a Parrish? I don't think I've ever seen that one. He tended toward thinner ladies, like Susan Lewin and his daughter. I have a couple of books on him, but couldn't find that one. I'd love to know what the name of the print is. Really nice, and the frame is great!

    Thank You, upstatenycollector The center Parish is his 1927 Edison Mazda calendar print, Reveries. We have 40+ parrish prints, and this is the first time in 38 years we had room to hang them all. I saw you also collected Roseville. We collect the Blue Fushcia, because the colors compliment the Parrish prints so well.
  7. upstatenycollector upstatenycollector, 7 years ago
    Wow, I had never seen that one. The one I remember called reveries was this one: The painting was a 1913 Hearst cover and shows Susan Lewin as the model, posing in a swing. I have a bunch of Parrish prints, as does my daughter. he is my favorite artist. I'd like to see more of youre Parrish collection. I collect pretty much what catches my eye. In the roseville, I like the Vista pattern most.

    I have seen that hearst cover on a contempory calendar, but not an old one. I would like to find one for the collection.

    Hi, upstatenycollector, the one you left the link for is actually called REVERIE. Unfortunately, this was never done in an original print way back. The only way you can get this is in a new printing. Check out ebay under the seller "maxpar". Click on their "ME" page. They hold a Maxfield Parrish show in Pa each year in the spring. Lots of old prints and collectables, neat show!

    Thanks Chele, for the additional information. Was REVERIE ever used for a Hearst cover?
  13. Chele, 6 years ago
    No, Not to my Knowledge or in any of the books or price guides. A friend of mine had a chance to buy the original painting a few years back from a gallery in NY. Story was that the price started out to be $125,000.00 and then went up to $400,000.00. She didn't end up getting it. Sounded a bit shady to me. That was before they started re-producing it for the current public viewing.

    Rocker-sd, What can you tell me about the figure in the middle. I have one identical to it and have been trying for ages to find anything about it. It belonged to my great grandmother and has been handed down from person to peron and was recently passed to me. It is a beloved piece in my family... we call it "The Dancing Lady." Any information would be wonderful!

    Dreamm, These are often referred to as " Gerdago Pixie Lamps". Heres some ifo I picked up off the internet.

    Between the wars, during the 1920s and 1930s, an entirely new modern style of decorative art emerged, using a combination of bronze and ivory. With the ban of ivory in the early 1930s, ivorine or celluloid (predecessor of plastic) was used in its place. The ivory or ivorine representing exposed flesh and the bronze or spelter representing clothing. The combination of “French Bronze” (spelter) and ivory or ivorine were fully exploited during the Deco period using events of discovery (opening of King Tut’s Tomb in the 1920s), celebrities, athletes (1936 Olympics), children, the fashions and costumes of the period by Erte and Gerdago, and dancers from the Ballet Russe,

    These are the spelter and ivorine models, probably made by Hirsch of New York. These sell on average of $250.00 to $500.00

    Phil, thanks for the history and info on the Pixie Girl Lamp. Since posting this I have taken your lead and found a larger crystal sphere for it, looks much more in proportion.
