"In these days of acceleration we find the genius called "Lenci" after having made a name for itself in designing and fashioning, among other things, those amusing felt dolls which are to be seen in nearly every toy-shop in the world, turning its attention to ceramics figures..... Entirely different in material and character, they possess the qualities of decoration in form and colour and a certain lightness in humour which give them the flavour of "Lenci" creations."
Contemporary, critical review taken from 'The Studio', Vol.98 - no.439 October 1929.
