We are up to 50 pieces now and trying to slow down, however, we keep managing to find pieces we dont have.
For those who are not familiar with the work of the late George Barsony, he was a talented Hungarian Sculptor who arrived in Australia in 1949. George and his wife Jean set up Barsony Ceramics in Guildford which is in western Sydney.
Throughout the 50s, 60s and 70s they were famous for their range of Black Lady Lamps and figurines, however, they didnt just make Black ladies, they also made lamps in a lustre, white, brown and even gold finish. There are also lamps of fish and a poodle lamp, however the most sought after are the quite possibly the larger dancing ladies. They also marked their pieces under the names of Venice and Silver Cloud, though I am still yet to come across any 'Venice' pieces.
George has only just recently passed away in 2010 at the age of 93.
