Rare Austrian Spelter 'pyjama Girl' Striker By Josef Lorenzl & Crejo C.1925 For Sale

Rare Austrian Spelter 'pyjama Girl' Striker By Josef Lorenzl & Crejo C.1925

A Rare Austrian, Cold-Painted Spelter 'Pyjama Girl' Table Striker or Lighter, designed & signed by Josef Lorenzl & cold-painted by Crejo, around 1925.

Josef Lorenzl was one of the most famous and prolific sculptors of the Art deco period.He produced figurative pieces in both bronze, spelter and porcelain, where he worked along side Stephan Dakon in the famous Austrian Goldscheider factory. His pieces depicted the style and elegance of the period, where his ladies with their slim elongated, almost boy-like features found fame throughout Europe and the world. His sense of oppulence and sexual liberation, reflected the revolution in society of the roaring nineteen-twenties and thirties!

This paticular piece is cast in cold-painted spelter, as a gentleman's table lighter or striker, with varieing hues of gold, silver & coppery browns. Which is then finally hand-painted with floral decorations & polka-dots by Crejo. Who painted many of Lorenzl's bronze and spelter figures, and was notable for his hand-painted flowers. It depicts a 1920's lady retiring for the night wearing her floral-silk pyjama suit, resting against a plynth, with a slightly bemused expression? To her rear isthe shelf &plynth, that would of held the lighting oil and still retains the original strike-wand for lighting. All is in lovely original condition, with only slight strike marks to the rear of the striking plate, showing original signs of use.

She stands an elegant 210mm's tall by 100mm's deep and 100mm's wide, and is quite weighty for her size! She is stamped with the 'ANR' foundry mark in a diamond lozenge & 'Made in Austria' underneath the base.

All my pieces are very well wrapped & packed in strong boxes to secure safety in transit, and are sent recorded and insured parcel post. International buyers are more than welcome to ask for a shipping quote from Ireland to their delivery destination. Thank you for taking the time to view my sale!
