An exclusive listed Arab VIENNA BRONZE Museums Piece: A huge Lamp (28 3/4 ” - 73 cm tall!) depicting a Mosque - by Franz Bergmann

A hard to find dream piece for the enthusiast of Orientalist

Condition: Pre-owned
Price: $15,000.00

Vienna Bronze Gallery presents:




The large and extremely heavy gem serves as a lamp and depicts a mosque with dome and minaret with a worshiping Muslim in his traditional attire. We attach many photos trying to give you a near perfect impression of the elaborate dream piece which is listed on page 187 of Joseph Zobel’s famous book ‘Antique Vienna Bronzes’ (Schiffer Publishing Ltd. - 2008), even though they do not do justice to the original.



Zobel appraised the lamp in 2008 for $ 25,000 – 35,000. Meanwhile the prices for such important and highly collectible Austrian Bronzes have risen disproportionately. Despite this fact we are able to offer a price of ca. $ 19,950 only! Indeed, a unique chance to acquire an intriguing museums piece that you will not find again on the market.


Another example of an Orientalist bronze.

The workshop created the bronze with perfect attention to the detail, which is absolutely breathtaking. Everything has been masterly crafted, painstakingly handmade and hand painted by highly skilled craftsmen and women of one of the best workshops they had in Vienna.


There are some minor flaws that we could detect, like a missing screw in the top part of the minaret; the hanging lantern inside is hung by three chains, one of the chains is disconnected; the little part on top of the minaret is missing (compare with Zobel’s photo). Nothing serious and hardly noticeable. The condition is very good considering the age. Even the glass of the windows are perfectly intact.


Feel free to contact us if you need additional photos or information.






Impressive ca. 28 3/4 “ (73 cm cm) tall, 12.1/4” (31 cm) wide and 7 “ (18 cm) deep.

A different one

This is a rare antique cold painted Vienna or Wiener Bronze cast in the traditional lost wax technique (called ‘cire perdue’) by FRANZ BERGMANN the renowned workshop that created great pieces with the highest quality level and the best collectors and resale value!

Other outstanding works were signed “Nam Greb” (Bergmann spelled backwards). These marks were used to disguise his identity on erotic works.
