The trained sculptor met Josef Lorenzl during his apprenticeship at the art ore foundry at the Vienna Arsenal. Lorenzl, twelve years his senior, was also the one who brought him to the Friedrich Goldscheider manufacture. Dakon's figurines, for which the Viennese received royalties between 1924 and the outbreak of World War II, are among the most important and popular products of the manufactory. His figurines are an exact representation of the zeitgeist of the "Roaring Twenties". In addition, he also created figures based on the model of the caricaturist Germaine Bourets. After the war and subsequent imprisonment, the sculptor returned to Vienna and now worked for other ceramic companies such as Keramos, Wiener Kunstkeramik, Kunstkeramik Adolf Prischl, but also the German companies Hertwig in Katzhütte and W. Goebel in Oeslau. Here, too, his wall masks in particular were sold with great success. The artist died in Vienna in 1997 at the age of 93.
