A Rare Austrian, ButterflyDancer', by Stefan Dakon, circa 1939-41.

Stefan Dakon, worked along sideJosef Lorenzl, whowas one of the most famous and prolific sculptors of the Art deco period.They produced figurative pieces in both bronze, spelter and porcelain, in the famous Austrian Goldscheider factory. His pieces depicted the style and elegance of the period, where hisfemale dancers,with their slim elongated almost boy-like features, found fame throughout Europe and the rest of theworld. His sense of oppulence and sexual liberation, reflected the revolution in society of the roaring nineteen twenties and thirties!

The Goldscheider Foundryset the standards and style for Art Deco ceramics whichfound fameall over the world - creating some of the most beautiful and striking models, which continue to be very much in demand to the present day. They had the most famous of Art Deco sculptors working and designing for them, most notably 'Dakon' &'Lorenzl', one ofwhich this paticular piece is by. At the start of World WarII, Austria was invaded by the Germans, who quickly took over the running of the Goldscheider factory, and some pieces such as this one, had the Goldscheiderstamp removed and temporarily replaced by 'Wiener Manufaktur J.Schuster', due to the Jewish connections.

This paticularfigureis pure Art Deco in it's sculpting,with her dramatic pose, creating the double-winged butterfly shape in the movement of her dress, andit's vibrant rich-burgandy floral decoration. She is featured in the Goldscheider catalogue by Ora Pinhas on page 156,with agreen dressand black base.Herdress adds more of a rique-quality to her sculpting, accentuatingher elongated legs in mid-dance, revealing a very short matching red under-skirt. Which is revealed to the front & rear by thewaist high slits both back & front, adding to the dramatic shapeof the piece! Her sculptingis full of sublime-energy and grace, with a beautifullyhand-painted face, a relaxed hair, lost in the dance!She is in perfect condition, with no damage, chips or crazing,remarkable for her age! The base has the J.Schuster stamp, model numbers and painters monogram in red.

She stands animpressive 240mm's tall by 65mm's deep and 100mm's long. She really is a truly breath-taking piece by a legendary firm, known for it's quality and avant-garde designs!
