Lajos Mack Zsolnay Pan Figure Art Nouveau(807 views)
Description: Item # 5364. A Secession era Pan Form 'lamp'. Form # 6236 dating this form 1901. Size: 10.1" x 8.7" x 5". This form was modeled by Lajos Mack and was first exhibited in Darmstadt in 1901. The glaze is a pale slightly streaked green with ochre undertones. Hard to photograph: the overall color of this piece is light green with the Pan figure slightly lighter than the rock. We have had this form a few times over the years and this one seems to be more crisp showing details, especially the muscles of the pan figure. The form was created to be a either a lamp or just a figure: not everyone had electricity. This example does not have the acorn mark for Lajos Mack. This may be a singular example of the Pan Lamp form that is not a lamp. We know of no other such example. Round raised Zsolnay Factory mark and incised form number 6236. Condition: interior under edge base flake.
