A fine early Austrian bronze.


The statue of a beautiful young lady is mounted on a marble base.


It dates back to the Art Nouveau era and was created by Franz Starek although not signed. None of his works were signed. You can find smaller versions of his bronzes in Ernst Hrabalek’s book about Vienna Bronzes.

The statue weighs two pounds. 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. 

FRANZ STAREK (1886 – 1966)


He had developed a unique design. All his ladies were about the same height with nearly identical hair. – Like most of the other artists he got neither wealth nor glory for his works. The payment for a few pieces of bronzes often was not more than the counter value of a loaf of bread round the turn of the century, however, for artists without employment, attractive enough.





Scroll down for more examples.



The bronze alone is ca. 2 1/4 “ (5.5 cm) tall and 4 “ (10 cm) long and the plinth is 9/10 “ (2.2 cm) high, 5 “ (12.5 cm) long and 3 1/4 “ (8.2 cm) wide


Good with a nice aged patina, no restoration, no repairs, no touch ups!


Ca. 1900 - 1910
