Hello all,

 I wanted to posted this lamp that we have had for over 20 years now. Years ago, a man claimed it was made by "ROBJ" of France. We have not seen or found anything to support this. Can anyone provide us with more information??.

Regards

Hi,

Unless it has a well for the perfume, it's not a perfume lamp, just beautifully decorative. I think it may be an Editions Etling. If you Google it, you'll find quite a bit of info.

Best, Nancy

 

Thank you Nancy. Yes there is a well she is holding in her arm. I should have also mentioned that on the bottom is a stamp in the porcelian as well as the paper label. The stamp says "Limoges HALGA  Paris". The label says "Editions HALGA  Made In France". Hope that helps.

Hi, I collect French perfume lamps, so I have a bit of knowledge, but I haven't seen this combination of marks, Limoges is an area in France, Halga is, I believe, a shop in Paris, retail.

Etling Editions commissioned artists to do pieces for them, an example is Chiparus. But there would have been a paper factory label.

Perhaps Halga did something similar. I would do an internet search for french perfume lamp woman, or some relevant combination of keywords..or try ROBJ perfume lamp, you may come up with a match.

Hope this helps.

We did try a search on the internet for "HALGA" and there was really nothing about the company other then a higher end store that sold objects d'arte. There is no information to when it closed, etc..... yet, the Etling company history is on line. Regardless of who made her. She is very pretty to look at. We have always handled her very carefuly and as little as possiable.

I bought a Halga lamp and the lady I bought it from has a website -www.frenchporcelaine.com 

I noticed your lamp ( or very similar ) is listed there under 'Art Deco'.

The seller is incredibly helpful, so she might be able to give you more information.

Kind regards

Sandra

If you type "Robj" inside quote marks, quite a lot of info comes up.  Here is one giving his biography. A recent sale on ebay of a Robj sold with 25 bids for $685. and it was just a statue. Yours could be worth a lot more. http://www.ceramique1900.com/robj.html
