D, William Scammell bought the Lamberton Works china plant in Trenton, New Jersey, in 1923. They produced some of the highest quality china in the world, including this pair of sculptures designed by Hungarian-born artist Geza de Vegh (1905-1989) and copyrighted by Scammell in 1936.
Produced in pure white china with a clear glaze, each depicts a woman wearing a flowing robe while kneeling on a rectangular plinth. The sculpture facing left is holding a ribbon or banner, while the one facing right is holding a bound sheaf of flowers. Standing 8 1/2 inches tall on a 5 by 2 1/2 inch base, each piece weighs about 1 1/4 pounds. Both are marked in red on the bottom: Lamberton Scammell, their shield and wreath logo and © SCULPTURED BY GEZA DE VEGH. The words Lamberton China are impressed into the clay, also. Impressed on the back of the base supporting the maiden with the banner is: #8 © De Vegh and on the back of the base of the flower-holding maiden is: De Vegh © #9.
Both of these statues are in excellent condition with absolutely no post-production damage and barely any shelf wear on the bottoms. They are the epitome of 1930's Art Deco design, sold in high-end stores at high prices when they were first produced and not easily found today, especially both in such outstanding condition. They are a delight for the eye and truly investment works of art.
