Vintage Monumental Royal Dux Style Table Lamp of Lady with Lyre and Basket


PRESENTING a Lovely Vintage Monumental Royal Dux Style Table Lamp of Lady with Lyre and Basket.

Massive table lamp…………….IMPRESSIVE and IMPOSING!

Modeled in the style of Royal Dux Figurines which were often similar to this style…with very large figurines of classical figures.

We believe this one is resin cast….not pottery.

From circa 1920.

Unmarked…..but my opinion is that this is most likely Italian.

The lamp features a Classical Lady with a basket of grapes draped over one arm and a Lyre on the other.

She stands on a solid Plinth.

The Shade is Extra Large and covers a single bulb with a turning switch.

Large brass stand for the bulb and shade.

 

Highly Collectible......near perfect condition !

Duxer Porzellanmanufaktur, or Dux Porcelain Manufactory, was started in 1860 by Eduard Eichler in what was then Duchov, Bohemia. The high quality pottery and porcelain figures produced there are now generally referred to by the abbreviated name, "Royal Dux."

Ownership of the business changed frequently over the last 150 years. Bohemia became part of Czechoslovakia which was in turn controlled first by Germany then the Soviet Union. In 1990, even the national name was changed to Czech Republic.

The problem facing collectors is that many original 19th century molds have remained in production throughout the company's 150 year history. With vintage 19th century Royal Dux selling for up to several thousand dollars, modern pieces are often offered, either deliberately or through ignorance, as much older than they really are. In this article, we'll be looking at genuine marks found on authentic Royal Dux as well as typical forged marks you might find in the market.

Original Marks

Royal Dux products can be divided into four broad periods of production generally separated by wars and political upheaval: 1860 to WW I; 1919 to WW II; 1947 to 1990 and from 1990 to the present. From 1860 to WW II, ca. 1939, the company operated under the original name Duxer Porzellanmanufaktur, commonly called Royal Dux. After WW II, around 1946-47, the factory was nationalized by the Soviet Union and renamed Duchosvsky Porcelain. The company returned to private ownership with the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1990. Since 1990, molds and variations of company marks from earlier periods have continued to be used as Royal Dux continues production into the 21st century.
