A large early Austrian bronze.
Here we have a true masterpiece
from Vienna, a beautiful sculpture of a polychrome pheasant mounted on a large
which may have been used for trinkets, business
cards, soap, as a pen holder etc. This is, indeed, an eye catcher of great
quality and in very good condition considering the age.
Interesting, you can see clearly that the
ancestors of the bird were dinosaurs.
Remember that domestic shipping is free for
all our Vienna Bronzes, regardless of size, weight and value. And it is also
free for our friends outside the U.S. if we can combine three and more. This
refers to all countries worldwide. No exceptions. The sculpture
is very heavy with more than 10 pounds!
down for other examples.
The bird alone: ca. 2 5/8 (6.5 cm) tall and
9 “ (23 cm) long. The marble is 3/4 “ (2 cm) thick, 10 3/8 “ (26.5 cm) long
and 8 1/2 “ (21.5 cm) wide.
Good with minor paint loss. Original paint,
no restoration, no repairs, no touch ups! The marble shows some fleabites.
ca. first quarter of 1900’s
