1st half 20th century, Italy
5 beautiful ballerinas from the famous artist L. Fabris.
The dancers are in perfect condition. Each one presents the sign of the artist (a red anchor).
The objects were made probably around 1923/30 after the artist opened his “manifattura italiana porcellane artistiche Fabris Milano”.
The Manifattura Fabris and Richard Ginori were the only porcelain factories published in the Enciclopedia delle Moderne Arti Decorative Italiane (1927). The critics of his time defined him as “an artist who works and keeps quiet” (Parenti 1927) and as “a poet, because he has managed to transfuse the poetry and passion that animate him into the cold features of his creatures” (Della Chiesa, 1928). Gabriele d’Annunzio called him “excellent creator”.
In these pieces it’s possible to admire the use from Fabris of a new decoration techniques, such as the use of lace for ballerinas.
